MONTREAL, Que. — CN announce on Saturday that it has reached a tentative settlement with the United Transportation Union (UTU).
Details of the settlement will be released at a later date.
The UTU’s 2,800 conductors and yard-service employees remain on strike at CN pending ratification.
CN continues to offer freight service across its network in Canada with management personnel filling in for striking UTU members, although the strike has caused materials shortages and created backlogs at the Port of Vancouver.
CN’s other unionized employees remain on the job in Canada and the United States. Excluded from strike action are UTU members employed on CN’s Northern Quebec Internal Short Line, Algoma Central Railway in northern Ontario, and Mackenzie Northern Railway in northern Alberta.
