OTTAWA Negotiations aiming at renewing collective agreements for CN locomotive engineers and rail traffic controllers are to start within the next few weeks. In addition, CP rail traffic controllers will also be negotiating at the same time.

"Workers at CN and CP have made it possible for these companies to haul in record profits over the past few years thanks to their efficiency and professionalism," explained Dan Shewchuk, President of the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference. "Companies must recognize this and compensate them for their good work."

The contracts will end on the coming 31st of December. Negotiations will affect more than 2500 employees of Canadian National and Canadian Pacific. The Teamsters Union represents more than 15 000 workers in the railroad industry.
