MONTREAL/VANCOUVER, June 7 (Reuters) - In a battle to unclog rail bottlenecks that left Canadian commodities trapped in landlocked western provinces this winter, the country's largest railways are offering C$15,000 ($11,566.93) signing bonuses for experienced workers who can hit the rails right away and get trains moving. The bonuses are a "new approach" for Canadian National Railway Co, which is also bringing back recent retirees and has launched a new two-year management trainee program to deepen its pipeline of future managers, said spokesman Patrick Waldron.

Canadian Pacific Railway conductors and locomotive engineers on Friday rejected the company's latest contract offer, with their union saying negotiations would resume and raising the prospect of another possible strike at Canada's second-largest railroad.

Teamsters Canada Rail Conference President Doug Finnson said by phone that the union expects to resume talks with Calgary-based CP on Friday.
