Bargaining Continues Between CPR and Union

Status of Ongoing Negotiations Between CP Rail and Teamsters Canada 2018-02-08

The following update has been posted to the website of Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (or TCCA for short, the union that represents certain employees of Canadian Pacific Railroad or CPR in Canada):
On, January 22, 2018 the Union served notice of dispute to the Minister of Labour in accordance with the Canada Labour Code. The process of conciliation normally lasts 60-days from the date the conciliation officer is appointed, however there is the ability to extend the 60-days should both parties mutually agree. Following the completion of the conciliation period, there is a 21- day cooling off period that effectively takes the parties to the point where a legal strike or lockout can take place. Prior to any strike action we are required to poll the membership and will inform you when that may occur.
We have discussed next sessions and have agreed to meet the week of February 12th, 2018 in Eastern Canada.
Milgram will keep clients informed on the progress of these negotiations.
