"Canadian Pacific Railway Train Dispatchers' Join Telegraphers' In Strike"
Announced 07 October 1896
The strike by Canadian Pacific Railway telegraphers now includes the Train Dispatchers for the national railway. The train dispatchers have now added their own grievances to the list generated by the telegraphers, station agents and operators. The report that the strike had interrupted train and commercial traffic across the country is untrue. Mr EV Skinner, General Eastern Agent of the Canadian Pacific Company stated that passenger and freight trains were running regularly and keeping to schedule. Areas where there were no railway operators or dispatchers were being filled without incident.
