The Strike is Over for 2300 Librarians in Toronto

Toronto librarians return to work;
after a ten-day walk-out, an agreement has been reached.

Members of CUPE Local 4948 had been on strike since March 19 and libraries were closed during that time. Members voted Thursday night to accept an offer from the city.

CUPE Local 4948 representatives said they were able to fight back all concessions on benefits, noting this is particularly important for the library's many part-time workers.
