MONTREAL, Que. — CN and its striking Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) union members reached tentative collective agreements over the weekend.<br>
<br>
CN is withholding details of the three-year agreements until they are ratified.<br>
<br>
The CAW expects to schedule ratification votes early this week. CAW shopcraft, intermodal and clerical members remain on strike at CN, as they have been since Feb. 20, pending ratification of new agreements. <br>
<br>
The bargaining committee representing the striking CAW members met in Toronto Saturday to review an enhanced contract offer from CN.<br>
<br>
On March 10 CN had offered the CAW three choices to resolve the labor 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 town the first two options and invited CN to table an enhanced offer. CN made that offer Thursday night in Montreal.<br>
<br>
CN has also reached a tentative agreement covering owner/operator truck drivers represented by the CAW. These drivers are not on strike. <br>
