MONTREAL — Canadian National Railway Co. cut its profit forecast Tuesday in the wake of an eight-day strike by 3,200 workers that brought the railway to a near halt.CN now predicts 2019 adjusted diluted earnings per share will grow in the mid single-digit range, down from earlier guidance targeting the high single-digits.The strike reduced its earnings per share by about 15 cents, CN estimated."While we expect to take some time and we remain dependent on favourable weather, we are pleased by how things are progressing," said chief executive JJ Ruest in a statement.Despite the backlog of freight and containers, the company suggested it would go ahead with planned layoffs of roughly 1,600 employees as economic growth slows.The Montreal-based railway said it "remains focused on continuing to realign its resources in light of the weaker demand, including its workforce, to address cost takeout efforts that started prior to the strike."CN confirmed last month layoffs were coming and a source familiar with the matter cited about 1,600 impending job losses.Meanwhile, chief rival Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. moved more Canadian grain in November than in any month in its 138-year history.CP announced Monday it shipped 2.74 million tonnes of grain, three per cent more than its record-setting October load amid a hefty harvest that has put pressure on rail networks.CN reached a tentative agreement last week with Teamsters Canada to end the longest rail strike since 2012.Analyst Walter Spracklin of RBC Dominion Securities said the revised guidance "comes entirely as expected" after the labour stoppage.He stressed in a note to investors that "CN's resolve to realign all resources" — including workers — "remains intact."This report by The Canadian Press was first published Dec. 3, 2019.Companies in this story: (TSX:CNR, TSX:CP)Christopher Reynolds, The Canadian Press

MONTREAL — Canadian National Railway Co. says it is striving to address grain and propane backlogs as it ramps up service following an eight-day strike, but industry producers are demanding priority treatment that may not come.The country's largest railway ground to a near halt after 3,200 CN rail conductors and yard workers hit the picket lines last week, operating at 10 per cent capacity and stopping shipments of corn and canola, which sat in full silos that prevented further crop harvests for lack of storage space.The delay added to the woes of a late harvest that had already put pressure on the rail network as grain producers fretted over demurrage fees and contract extension penalties."We don't prioritize any commodities. When you're in recovery mode, you're focused on getting trains moving," said Sean Finn, CN's head of corporate affairs and chief legal officer.CN is deploying extra resources as it tries to unclog its crowded rail yards, but extra product movement is not a guarantee, he said. The railway aims to move about 5,000 grain hoppers this week, versus nearly 6,900 cars the week before the strike."CN has indicated that they will not be opening up the floodgates. They don’t want to overwhelm the system, and we recognize that that is a concern," Erin Gowriluk, head of the Grain Growers of Canada, said in a phone interview."But this is prime time for Canada’s grain sector, and the window is closing. Farmers need to get those crops into the bin, and what’s in the bin right now we need to get on track, literally, and off to port."Gowriluk described herself as "hopeful — I'm not sure I'm optimistic — but I think collectively we’re hopeful that the results will reflect their commitment, because the commitment, I think, is there."Farmers in Quebec faced the double crunch of stalled shipments and a propane shortage. The province began to ration the gas, which is used to dry crops as well as heat hospitals and nursing homes, the day after rail workers walked off the job on Nov. 19.The Canadian Propane Association is calling on the country's largest railway to give "priority support to replenish propane" in Ontario, Quebec the Maritimes. The industry group warned that unpredictable delivery could exacerbate the shortage at the onset of winter, when colder weather means shorter trains due to the effect on the air brake system.Two trains filled with 10 million litres of propane each have already arrived in eastern Ontario and Montreal, said Finn."We think the propane challenge that was attributed to us during the strike is being addressed. And hopefully we’ll be in a position where most propane orders in the course of the next week will be filled," he said.In Western Canada, a $130-million backlog of Prairie grain may lose much of its value if trains can't ship it to port before spring, when prices typically drop amid heightened global supply, said Western Grain Elevator Association executive director Wade Sobkowich."If you're not getting enough cars or as many cars as you need — which is what happens in the rail freight sector in the winter period — do you ever actually make that up?" Sobkowich asked.CN and Teamsters Canada reached a tentative deal Tuesday to renew a collective agreement, ending the longest rail strike since 2012 that halted shipments, triggered layoffs and disrupted industries across the country.The rail workers, who have been without a contract since July 23, said they were concerned about long hours, fatigue and what they consider dangerous working conditions, while CN argued that the strike revolved more around wages.Ratification of the settlement agreement is expected within eight weeks.This report by The Canadian Press was first published Nov. 29, 2019.Companies in this story: (TSX:CNR)Christopher Reynolds, The Canadian Press
