TTC, unions ratify contracts in four 4-year deals

5/18/14 7:42 AM

The Toronto Transit Commission has successfully completed negotiations for new collective agreements with its four unions, ratifying four-year deals with ATU Local 113, CUPE Locals 2 and 5089 and IAMAW Lodge 235.

Negotiations with the unions, which represent approximately 10,000 employees, began in early March and ended last night when ATU Local 113 members voted to ratify their agreement. The previous collective agreements expired March 31.

This is the first time the TTC and its unions have negotiated settlements without the need for arbitration since 2008. This is a testament to the hard work and determination by all parties to reach agreements at the table.

The contracts, which include modest wage increases, and limits to contracting out and improved job security, will cost about $196 million over four years.
