MONTREAL, Que.– Truckers frustrated by yet another round of delays at CN’s Brampton Intermodal Terminal will be keeping a close eye on CAW talks this weekend.<br>
<br>
The bargaining committee of the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) representing striking rail employees is to meet in Toronto tomorrow to review CN’s enhanced offer.<br>
<br>
CN Brampton Terminal (BIT) was closed for much of Thursday to truck traffic due to CAW picket action. <br>
<br>
CN on March 10 offered the CAW three choices to resolve the current labour dispute: a good faith cooling-off period; binding arbitration; and the CAW agreeing to submit an enhanced CN offer to a ratification vote.<br>
<br>
In response, the CAW turned down the first two options and invited CN to table an enhanced offer. Last night CN made that offer.<br>
<br>
“CN hopes that the union will accept the enhanced offer and submit it to a ratification vote as soon as possible. This is the best way to end this unfortunate strike,” a company press release issued late on Friday stated.<br>
