BMWED members ratify Soo Line pact


The Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employes Division’s (BMWED) Midwest System Federation has ratified an agreement with Canadian Pacific’s Soo Line Railroad.

Eighty-four percent of the federation members who returned ballots approved the contract, the BMWED said. The union had reached a tentative agreement with the Soo Line in March.

The contract resolves a round of collective bargaining that began on Jan. 1, 2005. About 500 Soo Line employees are represented by the BMWED federation.
