Work stoppage by CN unlikely before mid-July

According to CN’s recent press release, a strike or lockout is unlikely to take place before mid to late July as the Canada Industrial Relations Board (CIRB) still needs to render a decision on the designation of “essential” services in the event of a work stoppage. The CIRB has not indicated how long they will take to make a decision, and neither a strike nor a lockout can happen until then.
