November 18, 2019 – We would like to update you on CN’s collective bargaining with the Teamsters Canadian Rail Conference (TCRC-CTY), which represents approximately 3,200 of CN employees working as train conductors and railyard coordinators in Canada. Negotiations continued throughout the night and early morning and will resume later today. We will continue to work with the TCRC-CTY in order to reach a fair agreement before the strike deadline of 00:01 hours EST Tuesday, November 19, 2019. This weekend, CN has been clearing their mainline to prevent trains from becoming stranded out on the network if a labour stoppage occurs. Similarly, as communicated last night, to keep their yards from becoming congested at the time of a work stoppage, as of this morning they have stopped pulling cars released from customer sidings. Canaan Transport continues to monitor the situation closely.
