Cranbrook Illegal Strike Application

The employer's application is therefore dismissed

Brothers and Sisters,

Attached is the recent award from the CIRB regarding the CP illegal strike application. As you will read we were successful in our application and we are reviewing it in its entirety. We will offer further comments in the following days. A small excerpt is written below.  

On the basis of the evidence before it, the Board is unable to find that the increase in the booking of rest by CP Rail employees in Fort Steele constitutes a strike within the meaning of the Code. The employer's application is therefore dismissed. This is a unanimous decision of the Board.

We would like to thank Denis Ellickson of Caley Wray for his assistance and guidance throughout this process and hearing. 

In solidarity,

Dave Fulton,
General Chairman - CTY West
