Toronto and CUPE Local 2998 reach tentative agreement
The City of Toronto and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 2998 signed a Memorandum of Settlement this morning on a new tentative collective agreement subject to ratification by both parties.

Local 2998 represents about 275 City employees, mostly part-time, who work at the 10 community centres forming the Association of Community Centres. These community centres are community-led agencies of the City of Toronto providing a broad range of social, recreational and educational programs and services.

"This agreement and the one ratified earlier this year with Local 416 and the three with Local 79 are fair, reasonable and will help us deliver more efficient services, which is great news for the residents and taxpayers of Toronto," said Mayor Rob Ford.

Negotiations with most of the City of Toronto's unions that had agreements that expired December 31, 2011, have now concluded. The contract for a new collective agreement between the City and the CUPE Local 79 Long-Term Care Homes and Services Part-time Unit is at interest arbitration. The contract for a new collective agreement between the City and the Toronto Professional Fire Fighters' Association (TPFFA) Local 3888 is also at interest arbitration.

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.
