A tentative deal was negotiated between CN Rail and TCRC on Tuesday morning, ending an eight-day strike for 3,200 train conductors and yard crews. While staff returned to work on Tuesday afternoon, CN’s normal operations will resume at 0600 local time on Wednesday, November 27th. The parties have agreed to no further job action during the ratification process, which is expected to take eight weeks. The impact of the week long strike resulted in temporary layoffs and severe shortages of essential supplies across the country. The new deal is said to largely focuses on fatigue and safety issues.
