Teamsters on Strike at CN Rail

November 19, 2019

About 3,000 members of Teamsters Rail Conference, including yard workers, trainpersons, and conductors, have taken strike action against CN Rail.

The union has been bargaining with the employer for several months. While wages are not currently a sticking point the employer has refused to meet the unions demands with regards to workplace safety, and is attempting to impose a lifetime cap on prescription drug coverage. 

The VDLC stands in solidarity with Teamsters Rail Conference for a fair collective agreement and workplace safety. For more information, visit the Teamsters Rail Conference website
