Members of the Teamsters union employed by CP Rail have voted 98 percent to reject the company’s final contract offer.
The Teamsters Union says negotiations with the company will resume immediately in an attempt to achieve an agreement and avoid a work stoppage.
34 hundred CP Rail workers in two unions have voted on the contract.
A strike was avoided on April 21st, when the minister of Labour sought a vote on the final contract offer.
The workers pointed to hours of work and lower pay than CN Rail as key issues.
The unions have the option of filing a 72 hour strike notice, but the Teamsters say they want an immediate resumption of contract talks to avoid a work stoppage.
