Teamsters Canada Rail Conference – Train & Engine and Canadian Pacific have agreed on a one-year renewal of the existing collective agreement. The agreement, which is subject to ratification, offers CP’s Canadian conductors and engineers a number of benefits and certainty over the next year, while protecting customers’ and future customers’ interests.

“I commend the TCRC-T&E leadership for their hard work on this and look forward to working with them over the next year to build the framework for a longer-term agreement based on trust and the best interests of our employees and all stakeholders,” said Keith Creel, CP President and Chief Executive Officer. “The renewal of the collective agreement for a one-year period is the best possible news for our hard working engineers and conductors, their families, our customers and shareholders, and the 9,000 other employees in our CP family.”

Earlier this summer, CP proposed to TCRC-T&E leadership a one-year renewal of the current agreement, which was set to expire December 31, 2017. Click here to read more.
