City council has given its final stamp of approval to a labour deal reached with the city’s outdoor workers.
On Wednesday morning, council voted 35-0 in favour of the four-year deal that outdoor workers ratified Monday.
Mayor Rob Ford said the deal could save the city up to $100 million in the years to come.
"I am very proud to say we accomplished this and without a labour disruption," Ford said in a news relase. "Some said it could never be done. Well, we did it."
The mayor also believes it will set the parameters for ongoing negotiations with CUPE Local 79, the union that represents the city’s 26,000 indoor workers.
