Toronto Zoo could open soon after tentative deal reached
The Zoo has been closed to the public since May 11 after around 400 employees, who are members of CUPE Local 1600, walked off the job. However, a tentative deal has finally been reached with zoo management.
As CP24 reports, this comes after 24 hours of negotiation. There will be a meeting and vote to ratify the deal this weekend. Once staff are officially back on the job, the zoo could open in a matter of days.
Zoo employees have been on strike for nearly a month and their animal pun-riddled picket signs have made headlines around the world.
