Citing the company's "unwillingness to negotiate," the union for about 2,700 train conductors, yardmen and traffic co-ordinators at Canadian National Railway (CN) warns a strike or lockout "could be inevitable."
The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC), whose members in this case have been without a contract since July 22, say both the union and railway are now in a position to take action with 72 hours' notice.
"Last-chance meetings" are being held this week, the union said in a release Monday, but added its negotiators are "pessimistic as to the results that will eventually arise from these discussions."
The outcome "now appears to depend on CN's attitude," the union said. "Will the company show itself willing to bargain in good faith or will it persist in wanting to impose unacceptable working conditions?"
