CN RAIL WORKERS THREATENING TO STRIKE?

Labels:
Teamsters Canada Rail Conference-Conductors, Trainpersons and Yardpersons (TCRC-CTY) represents approximately 3,000 CN Rail employees threaten to strike as early as this Saturday 8,  if Canada's largest railway can't reach an agreement with the union that represents conductors​ and yard workers.
Last week, members of the union failed to ratify a tentative job agreement reached with CN in October 2013. Since then, the two sides have held two days of discussions before negotiations broke down, CN said in a press release.
"We plan to return to the table today with the assistance of federal mediators and will decide our next steps at the end of the day if we fail to reach an agreement with the union," said Jim Vena, CN executive vice-president and chief operating officer, on Wednesday. 
The workers' last contract expired on July 22, 2013.  
On the same token, Labour Minister Kellie Leitch told a press conference in Ottawa on Wednesday that the government is "concerned by the possible impact a CN Rail strike will have on hard-working Canadian farmers, the manufacturing sector, and exports."
For that reason, the government will be introducing back-to-work legislation, she said.
The federal government signalled its intent Wednesday afternoon to introduce back-to-work legislation after the union representing some CN Rail workers gave 72 hours' strike notice earlier in the day.
