Unifor ratifies three new agreements with CN

(Source: CN press release, May 10, 2019)

MONTREAL — CN announced today that, following four tentative agreements reached between CN and Unifor council 4000 negotiators in March, union members reviewed the agreements and approved three of the four contracts in ratification votes. These tentative agreements were reached prior to their expiration.

The three ratified collective agreements cover approximately 2,000 CN railroaders in Canada, including all clerks and intermodal workers, excavator-operators, as well as conductors and locomotive engineers working on the SAR internal shortline in northern Alberta. The agreements include wage increases, ratification bonuses and improved medical, dental and health-care benefits as well as modified work/rest rules.

“I am very proud to announce the ratification of these agreements,” said JJ Ruest, president and chief executive officer of CN. “I would like to congratulate the negotiation teams on both sides for achieving mutually beneficial agreements for our railroaders. These agreements will also drive shareholder and customer value as they are a step toward long-term labor stability.”

CN remains committed to finding an amicable resolution for the fourth agreement covering owner-operator truck drivers of Canadian National Transportation Limited which was not approved.
