Canadian Pacific reached a tentative four-year agreement with CP conductors and locomotive engineers and a five-year agreement with its Kootenay Valley Railway (KVR) conductors and locomotive engineers on Wednesday.
    Full operations at CP and KVR were scheduled to resume Thursday at 0600 local time across Canada, Teamsters Canada said Wednesday.
    A CP spokesperson confirmed with American Shipper Thursday morning that the network is up and running.
    The agreements ended strikes involving more than 3,000 conductors and locomotive engineers represented by the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC), Teamsters Canada said.
    The strikes started Tuesday at 2200 ET.
   The tentative agreement must now be ratified by TCRC members, a process that will take place over the coming months, Teamsters Canada said.
    Details on the tentative agreement are being withheld pending ratification.
    “We believe this is a fair contract that our members can feel good about ratifying,” TCRC President Doug Finnson said. “I am personally very satisfied with what we have negotiated.”
    CP announced Tuesday it had reached a tentative three-year deal with System Council No. 11 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, which represents about 360 signals and communications employees at the railway.

On April 2, 2019, Gambia became the 22nd country to ratify the African Continental Free Trade Area, meeting the minimum threshold needed for the agreement to move forward. 

The container liner service offering the fastest transits from China to the U.S. is the OCEAN Alliance’s NWX/TPN at 11 days from Ningbo to Tacoma, according to BlueWater Reporting’s Port to Port Transit Analysis by Carrier application, one of the many tools offered by BlueWater Reporting.
