TO ALL IBEW FIRST DISTRICT LOCAL UNIONS
IBEW System Council #11 members on Strike at CN
Please be advised that the CN Rail strike ended at 00:00:01 on July 5, 2022, with IBEW members returning to work on regular shift schedules by 7am July 6th.
The strike was concluded after representatives from System Council No.11 agreed to enter into interest-based binding arbitration. The arbitration proposal included wages as the main unresolved item along with recognition of a MOS securing several previously agreed to items and the Union's selection of Arbitrator.
We would like to applaud the leadership of SC No. 11 for their efforts to negotiate a fair deal for their members and offer any further assistance they require during their upcoming arbitration.
