TORONTO, Jan. 23 /CNW/ - As the strike deadline looms between the CAW Local 101 and Canadian Pacific Railway, a number of complex issues have yet to be resolved, including in the area of Skilled Trades reductions across the country. The strike deadline is set for January 29 at 12:01am.

Bob Chernecki, Assistant to the CAW National President Buzz Hargrove, believes the negotiations are progressing, but there are still a number of key issues that remain concerning."Our negotiating committee has successfully fought back a number of concessionary demands tabled by the company on work rules issues and various benefits," said Chernecki.

CAW Local 101 President Tom Murphy remains optimistic that the union will bargain a strong settlement for its members. "We received a strong mandate from our members last week with eighty-five per cent voting in favour of a strike, if necessary, and the company is aware of that," said Murphy. "Our goal is to get the best possible settlement for our members and I believe we can do that."

The federal mediator has been working with both parties and will continue to do so until the deadline. CPR/Local 101 negotiations have been ongoing since October 2007. Local 101 represents 2,500 members in the CP Rail system.
