More than 3200 Canadian National railway conductors, train persons and yard workers have gone on a strike after the union and company has failed to reach a deal by the midnight deadline. The Teamsters Canada Rail conference has announced the strike on Monday night.

Dispute between the Canadian National railway and the workers has occurred because CN was cutting jobs across the railway as it deals with the weakening North American economy that has eroded demand. The union already gave a 72 hour strike notice on the weekend and they were expecting a deal around 9:00 p.m. Monday but unfortunately that did not happen which led to the CN railway strike.

This shutdown has affected a lot to the oil industry as well. It is having a seriously harmful effect on other resource industries. This work stoppage as triggered worries amongst grain elevator operators and farmers as well. The farmers are expected to lose sales and contract penalties.

Christopher Monette, the union spokesman has mentioned that they are still in talks with the union and in hopes of reaching a negotiated settlement and ending the labor dispute as early as possible. Pierre Gratton, Chief Executive Mining Association of Canada said This strike will result in a severe reduction or elimination of railway capacity and will trigger the  closure of mines with concurrent lay-offs of thousands of employees beginning in a matter of days.

The union also assured that the passenger rail services in the countries three biggest cities will not be affected by the strike. The workers who have gone on strike have been working without a contract since July 23, 2019 and they said that they are concerned about long hours, fatigue and what they considered dangerous working conditions.
