Ratification votes on a tentative agreement for Windsor's inside workers will take place Monday evening.

Windsor City Council will vote on the deal during an in-camera meeting taking place at 5 p.m.

The workers, represented by CUPE local 543, are scheduled to vote at 7 p.m. during a meeting at the Caboto Club.

The main issue for members was "bumping language," said union president Mark Vander Voort, who represents about 1,400 workers.

The deal was arranged last week after two days of meetings.

Vander Voort would not provide any details about the agreement, but said he hopes members will accept it.

"Considering the circumstances it's the best deal we could come up with."
