Steelworkers Reach Tentative Agreement with CP Rail

MONTREAL – A tentative agreement has been reached between bargaining teams for United Steelworkers (USW) Local 1976 and CP Rail.

USW Local 1976 represents 600 CP Rail employees across the country, primarily in administrative support and intermodal positions. Meetings will be held over the next few weeks in several cities across the country for union members to review terms of the tentative agreement and hold ratification votes.

Details of the agreement will not be made public until ratification votes are completed. The employees’ existing collective agreement expires Dec. 31, 2017.

“We will be recommending that our members ratify this tentative agreement. We look forward to presenting it to our members,” said USW staff representative Nathalie Lapointe.
