CN & TCRC agree to delay right to issue strike/lockout notices until mid-May in hopes of reaching settlement

MONTREAL, March 15, 2005 — CN and the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) signed an agreement today extending the date on which either party can issue a 72-hour strike or lockout notice to May 12, 2005. The TCRC represents 1,750 locomotive engineers at CN.

Gilles Hallé, president of the TCRC, said: “The union and company are serious about resolving outstanding issues without labour disruption. This additional period will give the parties time to schedule meaningful negotiations aimed at reaching an agreement.”

E. Hunter Harrison, president and chief executive officer of CN, said: “We remain optimistic that further face-to-face negotiations over the coming weeks will allow CN and the TCRC to successfully resolve the issues still on the bargaining table.”
