A month-long strike that has curtailed essential services, including ambulance service in Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry, has ended following the ratification of agreements between CUPE and the city of Cornwall.
All four groups, which include paramedics, library staff, and inside and outside workers, ratified the agreements. At its regular meeting Monday, Cornwall council also approved the new con- tracts. Many services were to resume Tuesday. Today, June 13, the Cornwall Aquatic Centre, Richelieu Day Care and the Winchester satellite office of Social and Housing Services will reopen.
The Cornwall Public Library board also ratified the agreement with its CUPE staff.
About 400 employees had been on strike since mid-May.
