    Background: Word goes out to pickets across the country that the firemen's strike of the Canadian Pacific Railway is officially ended. Terms of the agreement provide that some four-hundred and seventy-five firemen will remain on the job as firemen, instead of being shifted to jobs as trainmen. In announcing terms of the agreement, CPR president N.R.Crump said that all firemen with seniority up to April the first, nineteen-fifty-six will continue to work exactly as before the strike, with all rights and seniority protected. Firemen hired within the past two years have already been laid off, but will be given preference for employment with the railway..........................................
    The agreement which ends the three-day strike, means that no new firemen will be hired to work on CPR diesels in freight and yard service......
