Tcrc Agreements

The KP`s efforts have been to build on the momentum created with the model framework that has led to the successful negotiation of long-term collective agreements on both sides of the border. CP will continue to meet with the TCRC and IBEW in the hope of reaching agreements that are in the best interests of the entire CP family, its customers, shareholders and the North American economy. According to a CP press release, CP is meeting today with ibew and submitting streamlined three-year and five-year contracts to the union for review. Similar plans were presented to TCRC on Monday, April 16. This is a solid step to building a positive business relationship and moving forward,” said Doug Finnson, President of TCRC. We did not get everything we wanted, but we still came to a fair agreement that keeps the trains running while improving rail safety. This is good news for our members, the company and all Canadians,” said Teamsters Canada National President François Laporte. In order to continue to deter the company from breaching the remaining provisions of the collective agreement, workers receive additional compensation under the new agreement if they are forced to work 30 and 60 minutes after rest, including train attendants and railway stations. Keith Creel, President and CEO of Vancouver and Roberts Bank CP Rail, represents Vancouver staff and Roberts Bank CP Rail and said in the minutes that the company is doing everything in its power to reach a mutually beneficial agreement between CP and the unions. In an article in Progressive Railroading, Creel is quoted as saying, “We have been working hard with both unions for months and we continue to meet to negotiate an agreement that balances the needs of these two unions with the needs of all of our employees, customers and shareholders.” He continued, “I made work my top priority when I became CEO, and I continue to focus on this key area.” The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference Train & Engine (TCRC) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) informed the Canadian Pacific Railway Limited on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 of their respective strike plans at 2200 Eastern Time. . . .
