Members of Unifor Local 100 have voted 81% to ratify a new Collective Agreement with CN that represents a breakthrough in in improvements to benefits at CN Rail.
“From day one, we told CN our hard working rail members need to share in the profits because they are what made CN the highly successful company it is today,” said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President.
The new four-year agreement includes two and a half per cent increases in each of the first two years and three percent in each of the final two years from 2020 to 2022.
Unifor local 100 represents 2100 rail workers across Canada.
“We took our members top three issues: wages, benefits and sick days very seriously and we want to thank members for their support throughout the bargaining process,“ said Terry McKimm, Local 100 President.
Improvements were made to extended health care and dental benefits and short-term disability, with three paid sick days plus new premiums for the northern living allowance.
Bargaining continues for 3300 other CN rail workers at CNTL, Intermodal, and CN Savage Alberta Railway represented by Unifor National Council 4000 and CN Transportation Ltd.
