Teamsters Union Releases Shocking Video Footage of Picket Line Arrests by CP Rail Police Force

Teamsters Canada, Maintenance of Way Employees Division
The Teamsters Union is filing a civil lawsuit against CPR on behalf of its members for false arrest, false imprisonment, assault and battery and unlawful interference with charter rights. The union will also be in BC Supreme Court next week (June 7th) for an injunction application against CP Rail and CP Police, and in front of the Canada Labour Relations Board tomorrow (Friday, June 1st) to make an unfair labour practices complaint. Both actions are aimed at preventing the company from further intimidation and harassment of picketing union members.
