Toronto reaches tentative deal with outside workers
It looks like a strike may have been averted for now, at least for the City of Toronto's outside workers, which includes garbage and snow removal services.
Today, Toronto reached a tentative deal with CUPE Local 416, the union representing these outside workers, after an all-nighter of negotiations. CUPE Local 416 members were in a legal position to strike at 12:01 a.m. today.
Talks are still ongoing between the city and CUPE Local 79, which represents Toronto's 20,000 inside workers (childcare and library services, for instance). They're in a legal strike position at 12:01 a.m. tomorrow morning.
