CN announced May 26 that the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC), which represents approximately 6,000 locomotive engineers, conductors, yard conductors, and yard coordinators working on the railroad’s mainline, short lines and yards, has ratified its collective agreement with the Class I.
The union initially reached a tentative agreement with CN on April 23.
“We are pleased that TCRC members have ratified the collective agreement reached earlier this year,” said CN President and CEO Tracy Robinson. “We thank the TCRC leadership for their engagement throughout this process. We remain committed to working with this important group to ensure continued service for our customers and improved working conditions for our team members.”
In related news, TCRC on Dec. 23 ratified a new collective agreement with CN, covering approximately 160 rail traffic controllers in Canada.
