Toronto strike comes to an end

TPLWU workers are back on the job as of today after voting to end their 11-day strike and return to work.  From the story:

"Under the new four-year collective agreement, full-time and part-time workers will be protected from layoffs after they earn 11 years of seniority. All 2,300 workers will get a raise, though their wages will not keep up with the current rate of inflation."

However, it was not a total victory as many of the union's demands for security were not fully met.  But congratulations to our comrades in Toronto on your successful strike that was an inspiration to many!
