Canadian National Railroad Company (CN) locomotive engineers, represented by the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) union, have established a new collective agreement with the company, CN announced on April 16, 2015.

The three-year agreement retroactive to Jan. 1, 2015, provides wage increases and benefit improvements to approximately 1,800 locomotive engineers.

“We are pleased with the TCRC members’ ratification of this new labor agreement, which was bargained by the parties in February 2015 without the threat of labor disruption,” said Jim Vena, CN Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “With this ratification, CN has concluded its current round of collective bargaining in Canada and remains focused on delivering solid service to our customers and acting as a true backbone of the economy.”
