Teamsters Canada and CN's normal operations will resume on Tuesday across Canada.
The railway workers had raised worries about long hours, fatigue and what they considered dangerous working conditions. CN suggested said the union's claim should revolves around worker compensation.
A number of affected industries and provincial governments had put a lot of pressure on federal government to help end the strike.
