about the job cuts at Canadian Pacific... 
LAVAL, QC, Dec. 5, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Teamsters Union will not make any 
comment regarding the announcement of impending layoffs at Canadian Pacific 
until the details are known. 
The company has announced its intention to eliminate 4500 jobs, but has yet to 
meet with the leaders of the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) which 
represents conductors, yardmen, locomotive engineers and railway traffic 
controllers. 
"It is difficult for us to evaluate the scope of the decision," commented Doug 
Finnson, Vice-President of the TCRC which represents nearly 5,000 workers at 
Canadian Pacific. "We will wait to meet with management to find out the 
details, and will reserve comment until later."
