by Canadian Shipper

MONTREAL, Que. – CN has announced the ratification of a new labour contract by four unions represented by the Associated Railway Unions of Algoma Central.

The unions are the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference-Maintenance of Way Division, Canadian Auto Workers, International Association of Machinists, and United Steelworkers.

Approximately 70 mechanical, engineering and clerical employees are covered by the four-year deal, which is retroactive to Feb. 1, 2010. The agreement provides union members general wage and benefit increases consistent with other agreements reached this year.

CN acquired the ACR, which runs north from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., 300 miles to Hearst, Ont., as part of its purchase of Wisconsin Central Transportation Corp. in 2001
