Canadian railroad work stoppage ends

The employees of the Canadian Pacific Railway are back on the job.  The railroad announced early Tuesday they have reached an agreement with the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference to bring in an arbitrator to help resolve disagreements in their contract negotiations. 

CP Rail is one of two Canadian trans-continental railroads and has extensive connections in the U.S., especially since their recent acquisition of Kansas City Southern.  CP transports a large volume of commodities for export and is also a major transporter for potash from Saskatchewan to the U.S.
