Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. has implemented a new disciplinary program for its unionized employees in a bid to improve labour relations and overhaul a dismissal policy criticized as unduly harsh.

Keith Creel, CP’s new chief executive officer, said in a memo to employees the company will use more “non-disciplinary assessments” and “deferred suspensions” instead of actual suspensions to punish those who violate safety rules or the attendance policy.
