MTS, the Winnipeg-based operating division of Manitoba Telecom Services, has reached a new tentative agreement with its union, the company said.

The agreement covers about 1,200 employees in Manitoba in professional and managerial roles. The workers are represented by the Telecommunications Employees Association of Manitoba (TEAM) union.

The agreement is subject to ratification by TEAM members, the company said. The union is recommending approval of the agreement. Results of the ratification vote will be known later this month.

Earlier this month, the workers voted to authorize strike action for the first time in the union’s 40-year history. The earliest a strike could have taken place was July 16.
