CP Rail Advises Stakeholders That Their Unions Have Opted To Strike 2018-05-28

Canadian Pacific Railroad (CP, CPR) has issued the following bulletin:
 
Customer Advisory: TCRC-Train & Engine and IBEW issue strike notice
 
May 26, 2018
 
Today, the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference-Train & Engine (TCRC) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) issued notice to Canadian Pacific Railway Limited advising of their respective plans to strike at 2200 eastern time on Tuesday, May 29, 2018. In both cases, the parties have given more than the required 72-hour notice.
 
CP will continue to meet with the TCRC and the IBEW in the hopes of reaching agreements that are in the best interests of the entire CP family, its customers, shareholders and the broader North American economy.
 
CP has commenced its work stoppage contingency plan and will work closely with customers to ensure a smooth, efficient and safe wind down of operations.
 
While there will be last ditch efforts to avert a work stoppage, Milgram is obliged to inform our clients that the potential exists for CP Rail to halt their operations that will impact on intermodal traffic including marine containers.
 
Please contact your Milgram Client Services representative for any additional information.
