Canadian Pacific to resume operations after work stoppage

Approximately 3,000 Canadian Pacific Railway conductors, engineers, train and yard workers represented by the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference will return to work today after an agreement was reached between the railroad operator and union.

A work stoppage that began Sunday brought trains to a halt across Canada and interrupted fertilizer and other shipments to and from the U.S.

Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. said that it reached a deal with the Teamsters to enter into binding arbitration and end the work stoppage.

Canadian Pacific said that it will immediately begin working with customers to resume normal train operations across Canada as soon as possible.
