Five year contract ends three and one half month strike at Timmins agency.

TIMMINS, ON -- The strike of workers at the Child and Family Services of Timmins and District workers ended after more than three months. The agency and the members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees settled on a new five-year contract.

The collective agreement includes annual wage increases of 3 per cent, a voluntary, flexible workweek arrangement, the ability to receive more in the two final years if the provincial average increase is higher, and a mechanism to review and improve workloads.

The employees covered by the agreement are social workers, children and youth therapists, mental health counsellors, residential counsellors, early childhood educators, and child and welfare workers. The agency's services cover a wide area of Northeastern Ontario.
