Unifor Local 103 and Ontario Northland Transportation Commission ratified a collective agreement for five bargaining units.
The union represents 450 members working throughout north-eastern Ontario. Members voted 88 per cent in favour of the deal.
Ontario Northland announced its shop craft employees would return to work on Dec. 16, following the ratification.
“This agreement provides stability for employees and our business,” said Ontario Northland president and CEO Corina Moore.
“It will help us attract more remanufacturing and repair work to North Bay and continue with the enhancement of our rail maintenance centre in Cochrane.”
