One down, one to go.
The city and union representing Toronto’s 4,200 outside workers have reached a tentative agreement on a four-year contract following a marathon bargaining session.
The deal will be presented to CUPE Local 416 members in the coming days for ratification.
The union’s bargaining team is recommending members accept it.
If approved, it would then need to be approved by city council.
While no details have been released, Mayor John Tory calls it a ”responsible one” that is ”within the mandate” initially set by the city’s employee and labour relations committee.
As a result, if approved by the union, Tory does not expect any problems. 
Meanwhile, talks continue between the city and CUPE Local 79, which represents approximately 21,000 inside employees.
Local President Tim Maguire said late Friday afternoon the two sides are ”still far apart” on several issues, suggesting the city’s insisting on concessions.
The strike or lockout deadline for them is 12:01am Saturday.
Maguire says the union is not focused on the deadline but rather in getting a deal.
