United Transportation Union Strike at Canadian National
Source: TCRC National Office
Published: February 9th 2007

Brothers and Sisters:

Our Brothers and Sisters at CN have decided to move forward and apply the ultimate economic sanctions against Canadian National Railway as they will be in a legal strike position at midnight tonight.

CN states that there is “still time” to reach a settlement but that in the event of a strike it will “continue freight operations across Canada” using management personnel to work UTU related jobs.

Although Teamsters Canada Rail Conference members are legally required to work, as we are under contract, you are not required to perform any work normally done by UTU members and you can legally refuse to do this work. Should any problem arise concerning your ability to go to work, please arrange to call your Local Chairman, who will in turn contact his General Chairman for advice. DO NOT contact the Company on your own but rather utilize your Union representatives to assist you.

The TCRC fully supports the UTU and its’ membership in their endeavour to secure an agreement that will satisfy their members as well as their members families.

In closing, the TCRC and its’ full membership wish our UTU brothers and sisters total success in securing a suitable collective bargaining agreement for their members. For those who have internet access, check out the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference web site for further information.
