On eve of labour vote, union member laments future for young city workers

The 23,000 members of CUPE Local 79 will vote on the deal their union negotiated with the city on Wednesday.

But for many of the daycare workers, planners, shelter nurses, cleaners and others, the issue of stable work will continue beyond these labour negotiations.

The head of the union representing City of Toronto inside workers says the tentative four-year deal is “the best we could get under the circumstances.”

For cleaner Rob Carnell, there are some issues — around precarious work, contracting out of jobs and unpredictable schedules that make it hard to plan for their future —  that are too hard to ignore.
