From Canada Post Update on our Negotiations

To our Canada Post Solutions for Small BusinessTM customers:
Canada Post has issued a 72-hour notice to the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW-Urban and CUPW-RSMC), which represent our delivery agents and plant employees.
The issuing of the notice does not necessarily mean that Canada Post will not be operating on Friday, July 8, 2016. It allows the Corporation to take measures that are necessary to respond to the changing business reality. It is doing so by changing the terms and conditions of employment for all employees represented by the union starting Friday.
There can be no legal work disruption before 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 8.
In the event of a full labour disruption, Canada Post will not operate. Mail and parcels will not be delivered, and no new items will be accepted. Any mail and parcels within the postal system during a work disruption will be secured and delivered as quickly as possible once operations resume.
You can find the most up-to-date information about the status of our negotiations with CUPW on|ddn|lr|5

The Canadian National Railways Historical Association (known as the CN Lines Special Interest Group prior to 2010) was founded in 1989 as an international operational research and historical group that exclusively focuses on the Canadian National family of railways and promotes the art of modelling them accurately. The focus of the CNRHA is on all constituent parts of the Canadian National system during periods of CN ownership. Except as background, it normally will not include coverage of lines prior to amalgamation into CN, nor components after they have been sold or leased to other operators.
The goal of CNRHA is to maintain the largest and most accurate on-line resource dedicated to Canadian National Railways history. This web site contains a wealth of information compiled over many years by dedicated and knowledgeable CNRHA volunteers.

Reflections on CNRHA's 25 years

Just over 25 years ago, in September 1989, Mike Christian founded the CN Lines Special Interest Group (CNSIG) and edited the first issue of CN LINES magazine. As we look back over the first 25 years of our organization, which became the Canadian National Railways Historical Association (CNRHA) in May 2010, there have been significant volunteer contributions from far too many people to name. Some have been part of the group since the very beginning, while others have made, or are still making, important contributions.
