Canadian National Railway said Tuesday that truck drivers affiliated with Unifor have ratified a tentative agreement with CNTL, a subsidiary dedicated to first- and last-mile trucking-container pickup and deliveries.

The four-year agreement covers about 750 owner-operators under contract with CNTL in Canada until Dec. 31, 2027.

Canadian National and Canadian Pacific Kansas City are facing threats of strikes from Teamsters Canada, a union representing 9,000 workers at the railroads, among them train conductors, locomotive engineers and railyard employees. The Teamsters union is aiming to renew three collective agreements.
