Collective Bargaining Update: CUPE Local 5089 ratifies contract

We are pleased to announce that the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 5089, has ratified a negotiated collective bargaining agreement. This fair and affordable settlement recognizes the hard work and contribution of this group of employees.

The agreement was approved by the TTC Board today and will take effect April 1, 2018 (retroactive).

The contract is for a four year term, effective April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2022. Wage increases agreed to are as follows:

Protective Services Guards and Transit Enforcement Officers:
> April 1, 2018 - 1.25%
> April 1, 2019 - 1.25%
> April 1, 2020 - 1.25%
> April 1, 2021 - 1.25% + 0.25% Lump Sum

Transit Fare Inspectors:
> April 1, 2018 - 0% + $950.00 lump-sum for all TFIs currently paid on the higher pay scale.
> April 1, 2019 - 1.25%
> April 1, 2020 - 1.25%
> April 1, 2021 - 1.25% + 0.25% Lump Sum

The new collective bargaining agreement establishes a single pay scale for Transit Fare Inspectors, a new short-term disability plan and also includes other improvements to working terms and conditions for both parties.

CUPE Local 5089 represents approximately 100 employees at the TTC.
