Fertilizer Canada has called on Teamster’s Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) and Canadian Pacific Railways (CP Rail) to swiftly resolve their negotiations to avoid a shutdown to the rail supply chain.

If a resolution is not reached promptly a strike is set for 16 March at midnight. 75% of all fertilizer produced and used in Canada is moved by rail.
