Mississauga Reaches Tentative Agreement With Striking Library Union


Published July 22, 2016 at 2:32 am


It looks like there may be a glimmer of hope for Mississauga citizens who want to keep using the city’s libraries. 

The city has reached a tentative settlement with Library Union CUPE Local 1989, whose workers have been on strike due to low wages and lack of benefits. 

While this could potentially end the strike and reopen the city’s libraries, nothing is certain yet. The settlement is still being presented to the union for ratification — in other words, formally consenting to the agreement. It will then be presented to the Mississauga Library Board as well as Mississauga City Council. 

Further details on the agreement should be made clear once the ratification process is finished. Let’s sit tight and hope for the best!
