TORONTO, Ont. — The Canadian National Railway Company has negotiated three tentative collective agreements with the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) union, but is withholding details about the labour settlements until ratification.
The CAW expects to begin the ratification process shortly. If ratified, the four-year agreement will be retroactive to January 1, 2007.
Im extremely pleased that CN and the CAW negotiated these new agreements without labour disruption, said CN president and CEO E. Hunter Harrison in a company press release. Now we can focus our energies on continuing to run the railway.
The CAW has about 4,000 active shopcraft, clerical, intermodal and owner-operator members at CN in Canada.
