All TCRC Local Chairs
CPR Eastern and Western Regions:


At 1400 E.S.T, the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services (FMCS) withdrew their involvement. This new development means any further negotiations will take place without their assistance. The Union remains available and ready to bargain. However, at this point, no further meetings are scheduled.

Everyone, including the Labour Minister, understands it was the Company who filed the Notice of Dispute initiating the conciliation process and subsequent deadlines. This notice effectively determined when a work stoppage would occur. It has been apparent, throughout bargaining, the employer wants the government to intervene and advance their agenda. If the government initiates legislation we will continue to pursue all avenues at our disposal

This fight is for all CP Unions and all Canadian workers. Canadian Pacific is a profitable Company which has been paying out the highest dividends in years. The Union remains committed to negotiating a reasonable contract right up to the last minute. We will continue to remain in contact with the Local Chairmen and inform the membership through bulletins and social media, as soon as possible. Please follow us at

Teamsters Canada and the TCRC National Office are fully engaged and remain committed to assist and support us in our efforts.

Your Bargaining Committee appreciates and thanks those members, and their families, manning the picket lines, standing together in solidarity. Our lines are strong and fully dedicated to our cause. To those members protecting the Commuter Trains, your continued support is greatly appreciated and is crucial to our common goal.

In Solidarity,

Dave Able
General Chairman, LE West
