Unifor will meet with representatives of CN Transportation Ltd. (CNTL) and CN Labour Relations on February 25, 2019 in Montreal to begin bargaining the renewal of our collective agreement that governs more than 1,000 dependent owner-operator truck drivers at CNTL. Bargaining will continue through to February 28th. Bargaining dates are also confirmed for March 5-8 in Calgary, Alberta.
Our CNTL membership move cargo for CN’s growing Intermodal business, including local pick-up and delivery, regional and long-haul delivery across Canada, and truck service at Canada’s ports in Vancouver, Montreal and Halifax.
Some of the bargaining priorities determined by our CNTL membership include significant improvements to zone and highway rates, improvements to disciplinary measures in the collective agreement, and insurance and benefits for CNTL owner-operators.
