IN CASE OF TORONTO WORKERS STRIKE, HERE'S THE PLAN
Feb 12, 2016

Should the city of Toronto’s more than 25-thousand inside and outside employees strike or be locked out in a week’s time, there’s a contingency plan in place.
City Manager Peter Wallace says ”We remain very much committed to reaching negotiated settlements but we must also be responsible in preparing our operational contingency plans in advance of a potential labour disruption. As always, there is a high priority on maintaining public safety and ensuring the delivery of as many critical services as possible.”
In the event of a strike or lockout, Police, Fire, Paramedic Services, Long-Term Care Homes and Services, TTC, Toronto Community Housing buildings and most Public Library branches would not be affected.
Among services potentially affected – child care centres, community centres and arenas, waste collection east of Yonge Street, building and other permits and programming at City facilities.
