(Reuters) -Canadian Pacific Railway and union Teamsters Canada Rail Conference have agreed to a binding arbitration over a labour dispute, allowing for operations to resume from Tuesday at the country’s second-largest railroad.

CP halted operations and locked its workers out early on Sunday, with each side blaming the other for a halt that could have likely disrupted shipment of key commodities at a time of soaring prices.

Minister of Labour Seamus O’Regan Jr mediated the talks between CP and the union.
