The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) — which represents the running-trade employees at Canadian Pacific (CP) — has agreed to a tentative one-year agreement with the company, said the union.
The agreement includes some improvements to the working conditions for the membership. The agreement further provides an opportunity to address issues with scheduling, fatigue and the current backlog of disputes between the parties, according to Teamsters.
Further details of the tentative agreement will not be released until the members have had a chance to review the document, said the union.
The tentative agreement affects about 3,200 locomotive engineers, conductors, trainmen and yardmen at CP across the country.
