As of noon Tuesday, November 19th, CN has provided the following update on labour negotiations: 

  • The Federal mediator is still involved in negotiations between the railway and the union and both will continue to negotiate today.
  • In the meantime CN is unwinding the railroad and taking trains offline.
  • There will be no new releases for manifest customers due to safety concerns.
  • There will be no new trains loaded at origin.
  • CN will be running limited operations where it can but is far from having a sufficient amount of managers to run the trains.
  • CN is committed to minimizing the impact to customers.
  • CN remains committed to constructive talks that will bring forth a fair deal.
