Results of the CAW Council 4000 CN Collective Bargaining Survey

Back on March 1, 2010, CAW National Council 4000 issued surveys to its CN membership across Canada to provide their feedback
on the priorities for collective bargaining between the CAW and CN later this year.  The current collective agreements of Agreement
5.1, 5.1 Supplemental Agreement and Agreement 5.4 expire at 23:59 hours on December 31, 2010.

The links below will take you to the results of this survey, which shows a percentage breakdown of the bargaining priorities as
determined by the Council 4000 CN membership from coast to coast.  The document, which is available in both PDF and MS Word
versions, shows the top 12 priorities of our membership from the more than 30 that were received from the bargaining surveys -
collected from March to May 2010.  These priorities were used in determining our overall bargaining agenda and priorities.
