Important: Railway Update

10 May 2024

We wanted to reach out and give the latest update regarding the CPKC and CN negotiations. The Ministry of Labour has now involved the Canada Industrial Relations Board (CIRB) to determine if, contrary to the agreement reached by the railway and the unions, any rail activity must continue during a strike or lockout to protect the health and safety of Canadians.

This involvement means a legal strike or lockout cannot occur until the CIRB renders its decision, which is unknown at this time.

Therefore, no strike or lockout will happen on May 22, 2024 and it will be business as usual.

As we receive more information, we will continue to update you.
