Potential Impact of CN, CPKC Labour Disruption: Seeking Member Input

16 Apr Potential Impact of CN, CPKC Labour Disruption: Seeking Member Input

Canada’s Class 1 railways, CN and CPKC, are negotiating labour agreements with the TCRC, which represents about 9,000 conductors and locomotive engineers at both companies. CPKC is also negotiating with TCRC-RTC on behalf of about 80 rail traffic controllers. (There are also labour negotiations currently happening in various other areas of the supply chain, all of which have the potential to further impact Canada’s supply chains.)

Should negotiated outcomes not be achieved, this could mean a Canada-wide rail service disruption as early as the week of May 21.
