The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference - Conductors, Trainpersons and Yardpersons (TCRC-CTY) union — which represents CN's conductors and yard crews in Canada — has ratified a new collective agreement with the company.
The three-year agreement — retroactive to July 23, 2016 — provides wage increases and benefit improvements to about 3,000 conductors, said the railway company.
"This agreement is testament to the benefits of relationship-building and we look forward to continuing to foster this relationship moving forward. Together, we reached this agreement without a labour disruption, allowing us to continue providing quality service to our customers,” said Mike Cory, CN executive vice-president and COO.
CN has about 23,000 employees working across a rail network of about 20,000 route-miles spanning Canada and mid-America.
