Members of Unifor, Local 101R voted to ratify a new four-year collective agreement on Jan. 10 that includes wage increases and other pattern-setting wins for rail workers at Canadian Pacific (CP).

“The bargaining committee worked hard to negotiate this agreement that includes significant gains, advances rail workers’ rights, and sets the pattern for the sector,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor national president.

Local 101R represents 1,200 workers from British Columbia to Quebec, who service locomotives and freight cars and produce track and freight car and locomotive components.

The deal includes a 2.5 per cent increase in each of the first two years and a three per cent increase in each of the last two years, said the union.
