A degree of labour certainty returned to port operations in Prince Rupert as CN and the Teamsters reached a tentative agreement.

The Teamsters Canada Rail Conference, which represents approximately 3,000 CN train conductors, trainpersons, yardpersons and traffic coordinators across the country, had been working without a contract since July and had warned of possible job action as early as Oct. 28. However, this morning CN announced a tentative three-year labour contract that would prevent any labour or strike action.

Details of the contract are not being made public pending ratification from the union.
