Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) and the Teamsters union have agreed to final and binding arbitration to end the work stoppage that began on Sunday. Workers returned to the job at noon local time on March 22, 2022. CP will immediately work with customers to resume train operations and restore normal service across Canada.
“CP is pleased to have reached agreement with the TCRC Negotiating Committee to enter into binding arbitration and end this work stoppage,” CP President and CEO Keith Creel said. “This agreement enables us to return to work effective noon Tuesday local time to resume our essential services for our customers and the North American supply chain.”
TCRC spokesperson Dave Fulton said, “While arbitration is not the preferred method, we were able to negotiate terms and conditions that were in the best interest of our members.”
