MONTREAL - Unresolved wage and benefits issues affecting 1,700 CN (TSX: CNR)train engineers will be submitted to binding arbitration.
The decision was made after renewed talks between the company and Teamsters Canada ended Sunday without a settlement.
A strike by the engineers was settled on December 2nd, but the issues of wages and benefits were left unresolved,.
Both sides agreed, as part of the settlement, to send the issues to third-party arbitration if further talks failed to resolve them.
Labour Minister Rona Ambrose will now appoint an arbitrator, who will have 90 days to hand in a final decision on a new agreement.
The agreement reached on December 2nd came just ahead of federal legislation that would have forced the engineers back to work.
