The Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) and the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) did not get into an agreement yesterday over a labor dispute. As a result, members of the TCRC are on a strike and CP has initiated a shutdown of its train operations across Canada and to some extent, in the United States.
The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference represents approximately 3,000 locomotive engineers, conductors, train and yard workers employed by CP in Canada. CP has launched a fact-based information hub with materials about negotiating history and the issues and consequences of a work stoppage. Visit cpr.ca/TCRC2022

The shutdown will affect STG shipments going to Minneapolis. Please contact your STG customer service representative with any further questions.
