(Source: Unifor press release, April 1, 2021)

TORONTO — Unifor supports the proposed combination of Canadian Pacific (CP) with Kansas City Southern (KCS).

"This new North American single-line will drive growth not only in Canada, but across the continent," said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. "This powerful combination will be good for Unifor members in rail, and allows CP and KCS to fully utilize the USMCA to serve customers in all three countries."

Unifor represents 1,400 workers at CP in Canada, and 9,200 rail workers across the country.
