Mississauga library workers’ strike ends after tentative deal reached, all 18 city branches remain closed

The City of Mississauga has come to a tentative agreement with its library workers, ending a strike that lasted nearly three weeks.

The City announced late Thursday night that it came to a tentative agreement with Canadian Public Employees Union (CUPE) Local 1989.

Details of the deal will be made known, the release states, after the deal has been ratified by the union, the Mississauga Library Board and city council.

Library director Rose Vespa said that libraries will remain closed until the deal is ratified.

“After ratification, we will confirm the reopening dates and details,” she said in an email statement.

According to the union’s website, the ratification vote is slated for Monday.
