Library workers in Vaughan have ratified a new agreement after a five-week strike. The agreement provides the 96 librarians, technicians and clerks with a 6.5 per cent increase over three years, while improving benefits and working conditions. The board had been pressing for major concessions related to vacations, leaves and scheduling.
“Members are generally happy with the contract,” said CUPE 3448 president Kim Perry. “Our efforts were certainly worth it because we stood up for ourselves.”
