Tentative deal reached to end CN Rail strike, work set to resume (theglobeandmail.com)

A tentative deal has ended the week-long strike by 3,200 Canadian National Railway Co. conductors.

The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference said on Tuesday morning members will return to work by 6 a.m. local time on Wednesday, ending the longest rail strike in a decade. Details of the deal, which must be ratified by union members, were not available.

“I would like to thank our members for their incredible courage and solidarity,” said the president of Teamsters Canada, François Laporte. “I would also like to thank all the Teamster local unions from across different industries, all the labour organizations and members of the public who supported us on the picket line.”

CN said in a statement announcing the tentative agreement workers will start returning to work this afternoon, and trains will begin moving in the railyards by tomorrow morning.
