MONTREAL—Bargaining for five new collective agreements began this morning in Montreal between Unifor National Council 4000 and CN and CN Transportation Ltd.

“Our hard working rail workers have made CN the profitable company that it is today and we will be seeking their fair share in wages and benefits in these negotiations,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President.

The council represents 3300 rail workers across Canada including workers at CNTL, Intermodal, and CN Savage Alberta Railway.

The four Unifor bargaining committees of the Council are bargaining together and are determined to achieve gains in work rules, wages and benefits.

"We are bargaining strategically together to address the needs of our members who are the driving force behind CN’s continued record setting profits," said Dave Kissack, President of Unifor National Council 4000.
