MONTREAL - Unifor says it will hold a strike vote among its 4,800 members at CN Rail.

Unifor has been negotiating for months with Canadian National (TSX:CNR) as well as at Canadian Pacific (TSX:CP).

Canadian National and Unifor said Wednesday they had been unable to reach an agreement.

Unifor said today it will set a strike deadline close to the end of March, giving CN customers time to find alternatives.
