CN police union members ratify labour contract extension

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 7, 2005) - CN announced today that members of its police force in Canada have ratified a two-year contract extension to their current three-year labour agreement with the company.

The new agreement provides for enhanced wage and benefits in the fourth and fifth years of the Canadian National Railways Police Association (CNRPA) contract, which now expires on Dec. 31, 2008. The CNRPA represents 75 CN police officers.

The five-year term of the agreement is consistent with recent collective agreement extensions at CN, a development that provides greater labour relations stability for the company and its unionized employees.

Canadian National Railway Company spans Canada and mid-America, from the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to the Gulf of Mexico, serving the ports of Vancouver, Prince Rupert, B.C., Montreal, Halifax, New Orleans, and Mobile, Ala., and the key cities of Toronto, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, Duluth, Minn./Superior, Wis., Green Bay, Wis., Minneapolis/St. Paul, Memphis, St. Louis, and Jackson, Miss., with connections to all points in North America.
