(WASHINGTON) – The International Brotherhood of Teamsters stand in solidarity with our Canadian brothers and sisters in calling for an end to the personal attacks on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and a permanent exemption of tariffs on Canadian aluminum and steel.
LAVAL, QC, June 13, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, the Teamsters Canada Executive Board unanimously passed a resolution denouncing U.S. President Donald Trump, his personal attacks against Prime Minister Trudeau and his administration's tariffs on Canadian goods. The resolution also reiterates the union's support for the Government of Canada and the Prime Minister.
Calgary, May 30, 2018 – The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) reached a tentative agreement with Canadian Pacific (CP) to renew the collective agreement for over 3000 conductors and locomotive engineers, ending a strike which began at 2200 ET yesterday. At the same time, the parties have reached a tentative agreement for the Kootenay Valley Railway (KVR).
Laval, QC, May 26th, 2018 – The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) and the IBEW System Council No. 11 have served Canadian Pacific (CP) with notice of intent to strike. In the event there is not a negotiated settlement between the parties, the earliest both unions could go on strike is Tuesday, May 29th at 2200 EDT.
CP’s actions have forced us to vote for strike action three times in the past six years. Today, our members have again expressed their anger and frustration with CP,” said Finnson. “This is a reality check. It’s now up to CP to listen and show they respect workers by changing their confrontational relationship with their employees, our members.”
“May 23 is Judgment Day at Canadian Pacific,” said the president of the TCRC, Doug Finnson. “CP has done everything it can to make a strike inevitable, but they can still avoid a work stoppage by bargaining in good faith.”
Both the TCRC and IBEW Bargaining Committees very strongly recommend that the Membership REJECT the Company’s offers. As a result, the strike notice is withdrawn until the CIRB vote is complete, at which time all of the Union’s rights to strike are still in force.Click here to view our New Archives page...
Together we will continue to fight for the rights of workers through the legislative framework in Canada, through the negotiated Agreements in place.
