Back to work, back to productivity

Published by Stephanie Brooks on June 01, 2012

CME commends the government intervention efforts that put CP Rail back to work today, as Canadian manufacturers felt significant impacts on production, employment and transportation.

The week-long strike posed harmful threats to the Canadian manufacturing industry, costing some companies $30-$50 million a day.

CME called on the government to fast-track legislation to put rail workers back on the job site, as rail shipping is a critical link in the global supply chains of Canadian businesses. Manufacturing, agriculture and natural resource operations all rely heavily on rail for both imports and exports traded between North America and the rest of the world.
