Transit Contract (Seemingly) Set

It appears that we won't be looking at any kind of labour disruption on transit for the foreseeable  future, as it was announced today that City has reached an agreement with the transit workers' union. Here's the press release from City Hall:
GUELPH, ON, January 21, 2011 – The City of Guelph and the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 1189 announce that a tentative agreement has been reached for a three year collective agreement, effective July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2013.
Details of the agreement will be released after Guelph City Council has the opportunity to ratify the contract agreement, scheduled for the evening of Monday, February 7, and ATU members have had the opportunity to vote on the agreement.
ATU Local 1189 represents a total of 183 Guelph Transit employees—169 full-time and 14 part-time.
