Possible Work Stoppage at CP – Letter Campaign to Multiple Ministers

HRAI, along with multiple chambers of commerce and other business and sectoral associations, has co-signed a letter sent to federal ministers urging the federal government to do what is best for Canada’s economy and facilitate a negotiation between CP and the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference.

The strike could begin as early as 12:01 a.m. on March 16 when more than 3,000 locomotive engineers, conductors and other CP employees could walk off the job.
