CALGARY, Jan. 24, 2018 /CNW/ - Out of respect for our employees, CP does not normally comment on individual personnel decisions. In the case of former employee Stephanie Katelnikoff, however, she has raised concerns regarding her termination on November 21, 2017 in the media and we want to clarify matters:
Railway safety is a top priority at CP. Ms. Katelnikoff's termination related to her decision to post photos of herself in unsafe situations on railway property and equipment, committing railway safety violations, along with disparaging remarks regarding the company.
Her termination was not about her posting of personal photos or information per se that were not related in some way to railway safety and CP.
All unionized train and engine employees are subject to the same rules, regulations and company policies and there is a standardized grievance process in place to deal with individual personnel decisions.
Ms. Katelnikoff has brought a grievance to her union and will receive a hearing through that process. To respect that process, we will not be commenting further on this matter.
CP is a diverse, equal opportunity employer with established policies and programs regarding employment equity, affirmative action, workplace accommodation and return to work/disability management to support our team of professional railroaders.
