City releases detailed contingency plans in the event of a labour disruption
  
Deputy Mayor Case Ootes and Chief Administrative Officer Shirley Hoy today
released the details of the City of Toronto's contingency plans in the event of
a labour disruption.

The City remains of the view that a labour disruption can be avoided, and will
continue to work with the union to reach a negotiated settlement.

If both sides are unsuccessful, a legal work stoppage involving CUPE Local 416
may begin at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, June 24, 2002.

A legal work stoppage involving CUPE Local 79 may begin at 12:01 a.m. on
Saturday, June 29, 2002.

"While we are ready to implement a contingency plan in the event of a labour
disruption, we remain positive that a settlement is very much a possibility. If
a labour disruption occurs we will work to minimize the disruption to residents
and business," said CAO Shirley Hoy.

In the event of a labour disruption emergency medical services will continue.
Police and fire are not affected by any labour disruption.

A public information campaign will take place to ensure residents are aware of
changes to services.

Information about City services is available from Access Toronto at

Plan is available on the City of Toronto Web site.

The City of Toronto has been negotiating new agreements for several months with
both CUPE Locals and requested the assistance of a conciliator early in the
process to help both parties focus on the issues of greatest importance.

The complete text of the City's Labour Disruption Contingency Plan is available on the City of Toronto Web site.
