from your Bargaining Committee
Both the TCRC and IBEW Bargaining Committees very strongly

Over Hours Arbitration
Results of our hearings before Arbitrator Clarke in regards to the
systemic Over Hours violations that go to the core of rail
employees’ rest and work-life balance.
Appeal of J. Shewchuk
The arbitrator orders that CP reinstate Mr. Shewchuk with appropriate
compensation. The 30-day suspension and the termination will be removed

Dismissal of Engineer Murtagh
The penalty imposed must be proportional to the transgression

the circumstances and should be replaced with a suspension of one month.
The grievance is allowed in part. The dismissal will be set aside and
replaced with a one-month suspension. The Grievor, having already been
reinstated, shall be otherwise made whole.

evaluate the effectiveness of the programs that are in place at the
railways at this time.
