Toronto City Manager Joe Pennachetti will announce the City's contingency plans in the event of a labour disruption involving the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 79 (CUPE), which represents the City's 23,000 "inside workers." Local 79 will be in a legal strike position and the City in a legal lockout position as of 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, March 24; that is, one minute past midnight on Friday night.

Date: Thursday, March 22

Time: 3:30 p.m.

Location: Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St., West, Members' Lounge

The City remains committed to negotiating a new collective agreement that is fair, reasonable and affordable.

Toronto Police, Fire, Emergency Medical Services (ambulance), the TTC, the City's 10 Long-Term Care Homes and Services and Toronto Community Housing properties will not be affected by a labour disruption involving Local 79.
