Today the City of Toronto has announced a tentative agreement with the Toronto Civic
Employees’ Union Local 416 (CUPE), which represents the City’s 6,000 outside workers and paramedics.
"I'm pleased that we have been able to reach an agreement that is fair for the employees and
reasonable and affordable for the taxpayers of Toronto," said Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday. "Better yet,
we will be better positioned to deliver efficient services to the residents and businesses of Toronto."
Deputy Mayor Holyday thanked the City's bargaining team for their hard work and long hours in
negotiating an agreement that will help move the City of Toronto forward and also acknowledged the
Local 416 bargaining team for their willingness to negotiate at the bargaining table rather than taking
job action that would deprive residents of important City services. Details of the agreement will be
released once it is ratified by the Local 416 membership and subsequently approved by City Council.
Bargaining with Local 79, which represents the City's 23,000 "inside workers", continues.
