GO Trains unaffected by CP Rail strike

Just another Wednesday commute for GO Transit users in Hamilton – despite job action at CP Rail.“For our GO Transit riders, it’s business as usual,” said Metrolinx spokesperson Anne Marie Aikens. “We watched the trains leave Hamilton this morning without a problem.”Three-thousand CP Rail engineers and conductors walked off the job at 10 p.m. Tuesday, even as talks continued with the help of federal mediators.A second group of workers who had expected to join them on the picket lines are still on the job with a tentative contract agreement.There were concerns that commuter trains would be affected by a strike but Metrolinx says GO trains are not being disrupted.“It’s important that railway companies like our pay very close attention to what’s happening day by day – and that’s what we are doing.”Aikens says there are contingency plans in place should the job action affect GO Trains.
