TTC, unions ratify contracts in four 4-year deals

The Toronto Transit Commission says it has ratified four-year deals with four of its unions representing employees.

Negotiations between the TTC and the unions, which represent about 10,000 employees, started in March. Members voted to ratify the agreement Friday night.

The previous collective agreement expired on March 31.

The TTC says this is the first time settlements with its unions have reached a settlement without the need for arbitration since 2008.

The deal includes modest wage increases and improves job security.
