Negotiations with TCRC
People are a core foundation to CP’s success. We are committed to safe operations and work, rest and time off, is a crucial part of that.
Keith Creel, CP’s President and CEO, reached out to the TCRC-T&E leadership in his first days on the job, and has since sat down for an open and frank discussion about the issues, the challenges and the opportunities that lie ahead.
Out of these productive meetings has come a one-year renewal of the existing agreement, subject to member ratification.
The new agreement will run until December 31, 2018 and offers CP’s Canadian conductors and engineers a number of benefits and certainty over the next year, while protecting customers’ and future customers’ interests. The current agreement was set to expire December 31, 2017.
CP looks forward to working with the union’s leadership over the next year to build the framework for a longer-term agreement based on trust and the best interests of our employees and all stakeholders.
CP continues to work productively with all of our union partners to achieve long-term, innovative and sustainable agreements that balance the needs of CP’s business with the needs of our employees.
