May 24, 2018 – The union representing Canadian Pacific Railway train operators says it will immediately ask for negotiations to resume once the company’s three-year contract offer is rejected by members on Friday afternoon. Teamsters Canada spokesman Christopher Monette says the union expects CP’s offer will be soundly rejected since the negotiating committee recommended that action.

Monette says the union, armed with a rejection from its members, will try to negotiate a deal without resorting to a strike, but would give 72 hours’ notice if they proceed with a strike. Canaan Transport will continue to monitor the situation and advise our customers.
