Union action stops CN train in Winnipeg

Thursday evening a CN train was stopped due to action by Unifor members in Winnipeg.

"CN cannot escape the spotlight. The shameful behaviour by CN Autoport in Halifax will be met with resistance across our union," said Lana Payne, Unifor National President. "CN can expect more unscheduled disruption from coast-to-coast if it continues strike-busting tactics."

About 100 Unifor members and supporters showed up to the demonstration.

Some cars loaded onto trains in Halifax are shipped to Winnipeg to be stored and delivered to dealerships across North America.

Unifor Local 100 members have been on strike at CN Autoport in Halifax since February 27, 2024. The company has been using scab workers.
