CN layoff announcements put profits over safe container rail service

TORONTO, Nov.A 17, 2019 /CNW/ - Unifor condemns CN's layoff speculation at a time of high revenue.A  A "What we have here is a massively profitable corporation causing anxiety through public layoff announcements that, if realized, could seriously threaten working conditions and health and safety of rail workers," said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President.Members of Unifor Council 4000 and Local 100 have received layoff notices over the past two months that add up to the reduction of just over 200 jobs. Unifor members at CN inspect, repair and maintain rail cars, as well as perform essential work operating equipment to load containers. "Targeting safety-sensitive labour costs in order to squeeze out a slightly higher profit margin is the wrong move. Some cuts are not worth the risk," said Renaud Gagne, Unifor Quebec Director.
