All TCRC Local Chairs
CPR Eastern and Western Regions:

Attached is the award of Arbitrator Kaplan with respect to our recent arbitration hearing. As you can see the award contains only the items the arbitrator chose to provide a ruling on and not all matters that were argued by the Union or the Company at the hearing. In addition, the arbitrator’s award does not contain the issues that were resolved during bargaining and through the mediation process. We are attaching a synopsis of those agreed upon issues. We will continue to meet with the Company in the next few weeks to organize a final document that will take into consideration all these items that will be incorporated into our respective collective agreements.

You will note the arbitrator has remained seized on all matters until the new collective agreements have been executed and this process finalized.

When finalized we will send the finished document for your use.

Once again we would like to thank everyone who assisted through this process so as to arrive at these articles that will be contained within all our collective agreements.

In Solidarity,

Dave Able
General Chairman, LE West
