CUPE 4948 Toronto Public Library Workers Settle

Toronto Public Library workers settle.  Great work by our CUPE 4948 members.  For the most part, they achieved a fair and equitable contract.  President Maureen O’Reilly says they kept most of the concessions that were in the Employers proposals.  Unfortunately the part time workers are in a vulnerable position with job security for the first fifteen years of their employment.  What this strike did do was give the library workers a much better contract than the inside and outside workers who settled without a strike and gave concessions.  The publicity of the the status of part time workers struck a chord with the people of the City of Toronto.  There is now recognition and sympathy for the plight of the part time worker.  Sound familiar?
