United Steelworkers reaches tentative deal with CN Rail

The United Steelworkers union says it has reached a tentative deal with Canadian National Railway Co. for a new contract covering 3,000 workers in Canada.

USW Local 2004 says the three-year deal covers CN Rail employees who inspect, maintain and repair the railway’s track, bridges and infrastructure across the country.

The union says the new agreement, reached after months of negotiations, is being unanimously endorsed by the union’s nine-member bargaining committee.

It says ratification meetings will take place this month with results expected by the end of March or early April.

CN Rail did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The railway is still working to reach a deal with the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference for a new collective agreement for about 6,000 conductors and other CN Rail workers. 

This report by The Canadian Press was first published March 1, 2024.
