Strike called off in T.O.

TORONTO (CP) - A tentative deal was reached late Monday between the city\'s public library and its workers.
The 2,500 library workers had set a weekend strike deadline, but the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 416 and city officials agreed to keep talking.

The main issues in the dispute were wages, job security, hours of work and shift premiums.

A strike would have closed 98 libraries.

The agreement is subject to ratification by both the board and the union.
