Rail strike would be ‘catastrophic’ for barley farmers

Posted on Jan 18 By: Sydney Duhaime

Alberta Barley is encouraging CN Rail and its employees to resolve their labour dispute immediately to avoid any further disruption in transportation services.

“A strike now would be catastrophic to farmers across the Prairies,” said Alberta Barley Chairman Matt Sawyer. “The railways are already months behind in transporting last year’s record harvest. Any labour disruption would compound the problem.”
