From the CBC:

Toronto’s public library workers are back on the job after voting to approve a new contract on Thursday.

CUPE Local 4948 president Maureen O’Reilly says the agreement reached between the union and the city is a victory for the union, which represents 2,300 library workers.


O’Reilly said other key components of the settlement are:

  • No concessions on benefits.
  • Benefits for part-timers will be customized to suit their unique position.
  • The city’s desired cuts to employment security were pushed back to members with less than 11 years seniority
