City granted injunction order for clean-up of transfer stations
The Ontario Superior Court of Justice today granted an injunction against CUPE
Local 416's obstruction of the clean-up efforts at the Ingram and Victoria Park
transfer stations.

The City of Toronto's Medical Officer of Health ordered the immediate clean up
of the transfer stations and the Trinity Bellwoods Park on Friday, July 5 for
health and safety reasons.

"We regret that we had to go to this length to comply with the Medical Officer
of Health's clean-up orders," said Deputy Mayor Case Ootes. "We wish that the
union would have allowed an orderly clean-up of the transfer stations."

Clean-up will begin at Victoria Park immediately and at Ingram first thing
tomorrow morning by City management and private companies. It is anticipated
that the work will be completed by the end of the weekend.

The City remains committed to reaching a negotiated settlement with both CUPE
Local 416 and 79 that's fair to both taxpayers and workers.
