Saskatchewan grain transport threatened as CP Rail employees vote yes on strike
 
There could be a strike at CP Rail later this month, which would cause major grain transportation problems.
 
94% of CP Rail conductors and locomotive engineers have voted in favor of strike action, meaning workers could be walking off the job as soon as April 21st.
 
Ian Boxall, Vice President of the Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan, says operations desperately need to keep moving forward.
 
“Any disruption, in any rail service in western Canada, is a complete disaster,” he warned. “The backlog we already have, they’re not fulfilling car orders to date.”
 
Boxall said any strike could just make this entire situation even worse.
