[Canada]MAY 10 Canadian railway (CN, CPKC) strike latest updates
If a deal cannot be reached between them by May 22, rail operators and dispatchers across Canada will walk off the job. CN said it “maintains a cautious outlook” and CPKC president and CEO Keith Creel said he was a “realist” about the situation – both operators acknowledging that a deal might not be reached in time. With a May 22 deadline for Canada’s rail strike looming, Maersk has drawn up its contingency plan for North America west coast port calls, but warned of an extended recovery period, significant backlogs and knock-on effects. As a further mitigation tactic, Maersk said it would divert cargo from Centerm in Vancouver to the port of Prince Rupert, and Maersk is also “reviewing limited truck options for intra-Canada transport”.
