CN Strike and Accident Update

Jump to Comments

CN logo With workers in some areas on strike or locked out and others reporting for work, the union side of the CN strike seems to be in chaos, and now the Canadian labour minister announced plans to legislate an end to the strike yesterday.

The previous round of strikes had a major impact on Canada’s trade surplus (and, therefore, on Canada’s export-based economy).

Meanwhile, the Cheakamus River derailment has not gone away as a headache for CN: the B.C. government says that CN may be charged under provincial environment and federal fisheries legislation. CN’s offices were searched on Thursday.

Update, April 18: The House of Commons passed back-to-work legislation Tuesday night and could be law by the end of the week.
