Toronto Zoo, striking workers reach tentative deal: CUPE 1600

Toronto Zoo, striking workers reach tentative deal: CUPE 1600

The union representing striking Toronto Zoo workers says it has reached a tentative agreement with management, paving the way for the eventual reopening of the zoo.

About 400 members of CUPE Local 1600 walked off the job on May 11 after last-minute negotiations ahead of a midnight strike deadline failed to lead to a negotiated settlement.

There were no formal negotiations between the two sides for nearly a month after the strike began but on Tuesday the union announced that it had submitted a new proposal aimed at kickstarting talks.
