On June 15, CN received 72-hour notice from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers of the union’s plan to strike, as signals and communications employees seek increases in wages and benefits. CN representatives say they are optimistic an agreement can be reached without disruption. Even as the strike began, the large transportation company says operations are not impacted and none are expected.
With its 18,600-mile rail network, CN transports more than 300 million tons of resources, products and goods throughout North America every year.
