TORONTO – A tentative agreement was reached late this afternoon between Toronto Library workers, represented by Toronto Civic Employees Union, Local 416 - CUPE, and the Toronto Public Library Board avoiding a strike that would have shut down libraries across the city.
“We’re very please we were able to reach a settlement for library workers,” says CUPE 416 President Brian Cochrane. “This is living proof that negotiations can be concluded successfully if both parties are determined to make a deal.”
Details of the settlement cannot be released until it has been ratified by the membership.
