Following 103 days in negotiations that went around the clock over the weekend, negotiators for the Toronto Civic Employees’ Union, Local 416, reached a tentative agreement on July 10th, averting a strike by 6,000 outside workers in the City of Toronto. “If the agreement reached today is ratified by Local 416 members, it will be the first negotiated settlement achieved without a strike or outside arbitration since the amalgamation of the City of Toronto,” said Brian Cochrane, Local 416 president. “Our negotiating team voted unanimously to recommend this deal to members in ratification votes, expected later this week.” Details of the agreement will be released after it has been presented to members for ratification.
