STELLARTON, N.S. — Freight train crews with Cape Breton and Central Nova Scotia Railway say they’re ready to strike in order to meet contract demands.

Division 900 of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers has been negotiating for its first contract since February.

The company offer still leaves the two sides far apart on wages, overtime and pensions, says union spokesman Dave Swales.
