Operational contingency plan would ensure continued normal safe operations

MONTREAL, June 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CN (TSX: CNR) (NYSE: CNI) confirmed today that the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), which represents approximately 750 employees in Canada, has given the Company a 72-hour notice of its intention to strike as of 11:00 AM Eastern Time on June 18, 2022.

CN has negotiated with the union in good faith and will continue to do so. The Company has also offered to resolve the remaining differences, which are predominantly on wages and benefits, through binding arbitration. CN remains optimistic that an agreement can be reached without a labour disruption.
