CP Strike Ends

The Canadian Pacific Railway resumed service June 1, after Parliament passed a back-to-work legislation on Thursday evening. As the authorities report, the legislation sends all unresolved issues between Canadian Pacific and the union to binding arbitration, giving them 90 days to settle on a new contract or face one drawn up by an arbitrator.
Trains began rolling Friday morning, although it may take weeks or even months to resolve the backlog of freight. On May 23, locomotive engineer, conductors and traffic controllers walked off the job due to a contract dispute.
