Ottawa – After two days of mediation, Ottawa garbage, recycling and landfill workers have reached a tentative agreement, averting a strike. The workers, members of CUPE 1338, reached the deal with Canadian Waste Services Inc.
“We’re happy we could get a new contract without going on strike and interrupting the service we provide to Ottawa residents”, said CUPE 1338 President Ernie Dion.
Details of the settlement cannot be released until it has been ratified by the workers.
