Union gives CN Rail 72-hour strike notice - Saskatchewan - CBC News

The union representing rail workers in Canada has given a 72 hour strike notice to CN Rail, which means conductors in Saskatchewan could be off the job starting Tuesday.

On Friday, Teamsters Rail Conference, which represents CN rail conductors, said union members handed the bargaining committee a 98 per cent strike mandate.

The next day the union issued an update, saying the company gave notice it was changing the terms and conditions of their collective agreement.

Job action is set to begin May 30 at 4 a.m. Members have been without a contract since July 2016.
