Eighty members of CUPE 2137 have ratified a new deal with Jewish Vocational Service in Toronto, after waging an almost eight-week strike against the agency.

The two-year contract gives the workers a 3 per cent wage increase, as well as improvements to their mileage provisions.

JVS workers were also able to partially stave off an employer attempt to eliminate their Jewish holidays.

As well, there was agreement to discuss the wage grid during the term of the agreement.
