The article reports that Canadian Pacific Railway's (CP) maintenance workers, numbering almost 3,000, have threatened to strike, following a similar strike at Canadian National (CN). The CN strike disrupted shipments of chemicals, fertilizers and other commodities affecting Canada's manufacturing sector. Breakdowns in wage talks are the main reason behind CP workers' threat to strike but CP management remains open to a settlement.
