Good news for Mississauga residents who want to borrow some books.
The City and its library workers announced in a news release on Thursday evening a tentative deal has been reached.
“The tentative settlement will be presented to the members of CUPE Local 1989 for ratification. It will then be presented to the Mississauga Library Board and Mississauga City Council for ratification,” the release said.
All 18 of the city’s libraries have been closed since July 4th.
Branches won’t reopen until the agreement is ratified.
Members of CUPE Local 1989 walked off the job after turning down an offer from the city in early July.
That offer included a wage hike of 1.5 per cent.
Details of the new deal will be revealed after it’s ratified.
