Statement from CP regarding labour matters

The City of Côte Saint-Luc received the following statement on February 11, 2015 from Canadian Pacific Railways regarding the expected labour strike.

Despite Canadian Pacific's best efforts to reach an agreement with Teamsters Canada Rail Conference-Running Trades (TCRC), the union has provided official notice of its intent to strike the company in the event there is not a negotiated settlement. This group represents more than 3,000 active locomotive engineers and conductors at CP.

Subject to the union's decision to strike, which could be as early as February 15 at 12:01 a.m., CP will implement its extensive contingency plan by deploying qualified management employees to maintain a reduced freight service on its Canadian network.

This will have no impact to the City of Cote St-Luc's access to CP property for the purposes of emergency services and response. Residents may note reduced train operations in and around CP's St Luc Yard during this period of work stoppage. As always, CP asks the community to stay safe and be vigilant around rail crossings and railroad property.

CP will continue to provide updates on the matter on its website:
