Members of Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU), Local 548 who work at the Toronto Bail Program ratified a hard-won contract on June 29

The new deal includes wage increases, improved health coverage and an important initial step in addressing the pay gap between workers doing similar work in different divisions, said the union.

The Toronto Bail Program works out of 10 offices across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) to prevent people facing criminal or immigration issues from being remanded in provincial jails while awaiting trial or hearing, said OPSEU.
