    Default CP Railway Union Discussions Near Deadline as Labor Strike Looms

    Hours away from a midnight deadline, Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. is trying to hammer out a deal with two unions to avoid a labor strike that threatens to disrupt Canada’s second largest railroad for the second time in three years.

    Talks are continuing in Calgary between the railway, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and Teamsters Canada, Jeremy Berry, a Canadian Pacific spokesman, said Friday via e-mail. The unions, which represent more than 3,000 train conductors, engineers and electrical workers, have said their members would walk off the job as early as 12:01 a.m. Saturday if no agreement is reached.

    A work stoppage would hamstring Canadian Pacific’s ability to provide freight service in a country already buffeted by congestion on a rival railroad’s network. Commuters in Toronto, Canada’s largest city, would also suffer because some of the trains they ride use Canadian Pacific’s tracks.

    CP Rail Workers Go on Strike

    https://www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/a...reight-traffic

    More than 3,000 Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. workers walked off the job Tuesday, threatening a wider disruption in freight traffic and setting up the first major labor test for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

    The strike by conductors and locomotive engineers began at 10 p.m. eastern time, Teamsters Canada Rail Conference said in an emailed statement late Tuesday. Negotiations with the company are ongoing, Teamsters said minutes after Canadian Pacific reached a tentative three-year agreement with a smaller union, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

    About 98 percent of Teamsters members rejected the company’s latest contract proposal, the union said May 25.
