Talks continue between VIA Rail and Canadian Auto Workers
VIA Rail Canada issued the following statement earlier today:
"VIA Rail Canada representatives are currently negotiating with the Canadian Auto Workers union representing off-train, on-train, office and maintenance employees in a bid to avert a work stoppage. The union has indicated that it will give notice to the company, later today, that it may exercise its right to strike on Sunday, July 22, 2007, 12:01 a.m. EST.
“VIA remains hopeful that an agreement will be reached, and all VIA services are continuing to operate normally. In the interim, VIA is also taking steps to ensure that passengers already en route are protected, should there be a work stoppage.”
