We present results of the electrical transport measurements under uniaxial pressure on the antiferromagnet CeAuSb2. In the unstrained system, the resistivity along  shows a sharp drop at the Néel temperature (TN ≈ 6.5 K), suggesting a first order transition. With compression along  by ≈ 0.3 %, the transition splits into two continuous transitions, at temperatures T1 and T2. T1 is fully suppressed at a compression of ≈ 0.6 %, and in pressure ramps at low temperature this transition is a sharp cusp with hysteresis, indicating a first-order transition. T2, on the other hand, rises continuously with increasing compression, reaching 9 K at 1.2 % compression. At present, the nature of the strain-induced phase between T1 and T2 is not clear.
