Strike Still to Come at CP? Union Leaders Recommend that Members Reject Offers 2018-04-23

As reported in a special bulletin issued in the evening on Friday, April 20, Canadian Pacific Railway Limited "reached an agreement" with the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference-Train & Engine (TCRC) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), which averted the potential work stoppage of 12:01 am Eastern time on April 21. 
 
A press release from CP indicated that, on the recommendation of federal mediators, the Minister of Labour would direct the Canadian Industrial Relations Board to administer a ratification vote on each of the company's final offers to the TCRC and IBEW.
 
However, in their own press release, also issued on April 20, the two unions said they strongly recommend that their members reject the company offers. They said, "Because of this new development, the Teamsters and the IBEW will postpone a strike until their members have had a chance to vote on the agreement. Once CP’s offer is rejected, both unions will be free to exercise their rights to strike."
 
The date of the ratification vote has not yet been set.
