City of Toronto reaches tentative agreement with CUPE Local 2998

The City of Toronto has reached a tentative settlement with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 2998 representing the Association of Community Centres. Once the union has ratified this deal, it will be reviewed at a subsequent Toronto City Council meeting for employer ratification.

The tentative settlement was reached through ongoing negotiations, with the goal of maintaining a positive workplace and providing the best service delivery for residents. The union has a combined 270 members and most of these staff are part-time employees. Members of Local 2998 work at 10 community centres, which as a group are members of the Association of Community Centres (AOCCs). The centres are:

•       519 Church Street Community Centre
•       Applegrove Community Complex
•       Cecil Street Community Centre
•       Central Eglinton Community Centre
•       Community Centre 55
•       Eastview Neighbourhood Community Centre
•       Harbourfront Community Centre
•       Ralph Thornton Community Centre
•       Scadding Court Community Centre
•       Swansea Town Hall

Details of the agreement will be shared once the agreement is ratified by the union and Toronto City Council.


“I’m pleased that our bargaining teams have continued to meet to work out a deal, even during these difficult times. I appreciate their hard work in coming to a fair agreement, as well as the commitment and dedication of our staff who continue to serve our residents every day.”
– Mayor John Tory

“This tentative agreement is an important step in our work with our union partners. Together we have developed a fair outcome for our valued employees and for the City of Toronto. I look forward to continuing to work together in the future.”
– Deputy Mayor Denzil Minnan-Wong, Chair of the Collective Bargaining Subcommittee
