Negotiations with CUPE Local 416 will continue and therefore no labour
disruption has taken place. CUPE Local 416 indicated that work would continue
with the City through the night.
"This is a good sign. The City wants to reach a settlement," said Mayor Mel
Lastman. "No one wants a strike and we believe that one can be averted."
The union was in a legal strike position at 12:01 a.m. on June 24, 2002. The
agreement to continue negotiations means that no labour disruption will take
place until further notice.
On June 20, 2002, the City of Toronto released a detailed contingency plan in
case of a labour disruption. The complete text of the City's labour disruption
contingency plan is available on the City's Web
Updates on the status of negotiations are available on the Access Toronto
information line at 416-338-0338.
Any major developments in negotiations will be announced to the media.
