Some 450 inside and outside workers with the City of Brampton, northwest of Toronto, have settled their strike after a week-and-a-half, winning job security and a 9% increase in wages.

The members of CUPE 831 went on strike June 11. The main issues in the dispute were layoff language and wages that had not increased since 1992.

The four-year deal includes job security language, benefits improvements and wage increases of 3%, 2%, 2% and 2%. The new contract runs to April 2002.
