City reaches tentative agreement with TCEU Local 416 8 a.m.
  
As of 8 a.m. this morning, the City of Toronto has reached 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.

City services and programs continue as usual.

Bargaining with Local 79, which represents the City's 23,000 "inside workers", continues.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
