City of Toronto labour disruption could start February 5


The Ontario Ministry of Labour has just issued a "no board" report, meaning Toronto city workers could be locked out or on strike in about two weeks.

The report confirms that negotiations between the City of Toronto and CUPE 416 have effectively broken down and the province will not intervene with a conciliation board in attempt to resolve the issue. The City has been in negotiations with CUPE 416, which represents 6,000 outside workers including garbage collectors, park maintenance staff, and early education workers, over wage and job security concerns.

The City and union are in legal position to issue a labour disruption on February 5.
