The possibility of a strike at CP Rail could be bad news for farmers who have already dealt with rail delays this year.

Train conductors, engineers, and signal maintainers have been operating without a contract since the old one expired last year.

CP Rail says, meetings are planned for this week with the two unions collectively representing over three thousand workers.

A strike at CP Rail could happen as early as this Saturday, April 21.
