Toronto Garbage Strike Could be Over by Friday
A deal to end Toronto's ongoing garbage strike could be finished as early as Thursday evening, with workers going back to work on Friday.
Inside workers agreed to the deal from the city on Wednesday and brought it to the outside workers on Thursday. The 6,000 outside workers have been on strike for over 35 days now, leaving temporary garbage sites close to overflowing.
Officials with CUPE Local 416, which represents about 6,000 outside workers, announced early Thursday morning that a memorandum of agreement and a return-to-work protocol had been reached with the city — allowing a ratification vote to go ahead.
Results from the vote are expected Thursday evening.
