Tentative deal in CN Strike

A farmer on Nauvoo Road in Dawn-Euphemia brings in some of his corn. The harvest has ground to standstill for many since propane needed to dry the grain isn't available due to a strike by Teamsters at CN Rail.

There is a tentative deal that could end the CN Rail Strike.

Teamsters Canada has reached a tentative agreement to renew the collective agreement for over 3,000 conductors,  and yard workers.

The union said normal operations at CN will resume Wednesday at 6 a.m. local time across Canada.

The strike had affected commerce across the country, including on farms in Lambton County. The strike caused a shortage in propane, which about half of Ontario farmers use to dry grain.

It’s estimated it will take three to four weeks for shipments of propane to return to normal.
