Signal and communication workers at CN Rail are set to return to their jobs at 7 am on Wednesday ending their 17 day strike. 

The 750 workers are represented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers  and install and maintain signals and trackside equipment, including the warning systems at railroad-highway crossings.

The two sides agreed to binding arbitration bringing the strike to an end.

In a statement released on Monday, CN thanked management employees and contractors for their service
which allowed rail operations to continue uninterrupted during the strike.

In a tweet, Federal Labour Minister Seamus O’Regan thanked federal mediators for helping the company and union reach an agreement to end the strike.
