CP Announces Ratification of New Collective Agreement With Soo Line BLET

Canadian Pacific said today that members of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) have ratified a new five-year collective agreement covering approximately 300 employees working on CP's Soo Linesubsidiary.

"We thank the BLET for working collaboratively to reach this negotiated collective agreement," said Keith Creel, CP's President and CEO.

"The ratification of this agreement, which provides improved pay and flexibility, is a positive for our railroaders, further demonstrating CP's commitment to reaching new negotiated collective agreements."

CP has successfully negotiated agreements with multiple unions representing craft employees in recent months, resulting in the ratification of 16 agreements in 2023 in Canada and the United States.

The BLET hourly collective agreement includes Soo Line locomotive engineers in North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana.
