Province strikes deal with union representing thousands of public service workers


The union representing 38,000 Ontario public servants has reached a tentative two-year collective agreement with the governing Liberals.

The government says the deal with the Ontario Public Service Employees Union includes a commitment to implement a two-year wage freeze to help battle the province's $14.4 billion deficit.

Details won't be released until the agreement is ratified.
The Liberals previously reached a deal with a labour group representing 12,000 managers, supervisors and other professionals in the public service, which was ratified in October.
