Written by 

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) System Council 11 and Canadian Pacific Thursday said the parties have reached a tentative five-year labor agreement covering approximately 450 employees who maintain and install railway signals and communications systems across Canada.

Details of the tentative agreement are being withheld pending ratification by the IBEW membership, the parties said.

Brian Strong, senior general chairman for the IBEW, System Council 11, said in a statement, "The IBEW bargaining committee unanimously endorses this tentative agreement and is recommending the membership ratify it."
