The City of Toronto’s outside workers have voted in favour of a deal reached a week ago between CUPE Local 416 and city negotiators.

There are reports the deal includes a five percent wage hike over four years and a .25 percent bonus in January of 2019. Only employees with 15 years of seniority or more as of January 2019 are reportedly guaranteed to keep their jobs if their positions are privatized.

Workers include garbage collectors, park staff and snowplow operators. Local 416’s 4200 members had been without a contract since the end of 2015.

Representatives of the union’s inside counterpart, CUPE Local 79, are still talking with city negotiators to reach a tentative deal.

Inside workers have been on a work-to-rule campaign since Monday.
