CUPE Local 79, TCEU Local 416 Statement on Special City Council Meeting

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 25, 2009) - The following statement has been issued by Ann Dembinski, president of CUPE Local 79 and Mark Ferguson, president of Toronto Civic Employees Union Local 416 CUPE:

We recognize that good jobs are vital to Ontario communities. We will not set up picket lines or take other action to prevent Toronto City Council from holding a special meeting tomorrow at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

We remind Toronto City Council that getting our members back to work with fair collective agreements is as urgent and important to this city as the purchase of new streetcars.
