<div><b>Page Content:</b> <p>As was stated Sunday, May 27, 2012, before Teamsters Canada Rail Conference (TCRC) withdrew from federally mediated discussions, Canadian Pacific (TSX:CP)(NYSE:CP) requested the union to re-enter discussions to allow their members, CP employees, to return to work and stop the damage the union is unnecessarily causing to CP customers’ businesses and employment levels.* CP is again repeating that request to the Teamsters today.</p>
<p>“Since negotiations began in October 2011, CP has made multiple reasonable and good faith offers to the Teamsters on various items such as pensions, health spending accounts, a 48-hour rest provision and other fatigue management counter measures that add to and complement many existing regulatory and negotiated provisions.* These and other work rule proposals offered by the company exceed those that the Teamsters have in place with other North American railways,” said CP VP Human Resources & Industrial Relations Peter Edwards. </p>
<p>“While the Teamsters refused numerous requests from CP and the government for alternatives to achieve a negotiated settlement, CP agreed to each, including options for extension of talks and voluntary arbitration,” said Edwards.* “The Teamsters pushed their members into an unnecessary work stoppage and have, throughout the negotiations, refused to minimize the impact on other affected CP employees, our customers, and the Canadian economy.”</p>
<p>Edwards said: “As we proposed to the union Sunday, Canadian Pacific calls on the Teamsters to allow our operating employees to return to work without delay and restore service to our heavily impacted customers.* We consciously engaged in good faith bargaining throughout the process, and we will do so again once the union allows employees to return to work.”</p>
