CP Advisory: One of Two Unions Settle, Intermodal Terminal Gates Open During Work Stoppage as Capacity Permits 2018-05-30

CP Rail and System Council No. 11 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) announced last night that they had reached a tentative three-year deal.
 
CP has not yet reached a deal with the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC). The union said its workers walked out at 10:00 pm ET as negotiations continued with the company.
 
During the strike, CP plans to keep intermodal terminal gates open, in so far as practicable and so long as capacity permits, in order to reduce the impact of the work stoppage. 
 
If at origin, customers will be able to request pick up or ingate containers until terminals have reached their capacity. Private perishable protective service equipment and international reefers are excluded and will not be allowed in the terminals at this time, as they require fueling/monitoring.
 
If a container has arrived at its destination terminal, customers will be able to request delivery or pick up containers from the terminal. 
 
CP will not be providing over-the-road train service during the work stoppage.
 
CP will communicate to customers when terminals are nearing capacity to avoid loads being turned away at the gate.
