MONTREAL, Que. — The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) has informed CN Rail today that its 1,750 members at CN plan to strike the railroad in Canada at 0001 hours May 18, 2005.

CN says however it remains optimistic that it can reach an agreement with the TCRC without labour disruption, although no further negotiations are scheduled.

The TCRC represents locomotive engineers.

CN has contingency plans to maintain core freight operations in the event of a TCRC strike.
