Updated on March 29

Teamster local unions unanimously reached a tentative agreement with Purolator early on March 29. The strike set for today at 4:30 pm has therefore been averted. More details will be made available throughout the day.

The tentative deal still needs to be ratified by members.

Purolator’s final offer was initially rejected by members on March 26. As a result of this rejection, the union had served a 72-hour notice of strike action to the company.

On March 28, Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services called a meeting with both parties in an attempt to avoid a labour dispute.
