Contract rejected

MONTREAL—Some 3,000 workers at CN Rail have rejected a second tentative contract, prompting the company to suggest the talks go to binding arbitration.
The latest tentative deal was reached in early February in the face of a threatened strike by the employees.

It came as Labour minister Kellie Leitch indicated the federal government was preparing back-to-work legislation.
Leitch had expressed concern the strike would cause disruption to Canada’s economy.
The workers had rejected another tentative contract last fall.
