Toronto container haulers sign “unprecedented” deal, end strike

by Truck News

BRAMPTON, Ont. — Truckers represented by the Container Trucking Association of Ontario (CTAO) have returned to work, after signing an “unprecedented” deal with the industry, the group announced.

The deal was signed at 6:30 p.m. yesterday, following a nine-day strike.

The CTAO said the new deal “includes a fair percentage increase in rates for the first time in over a decade and is unprecedented in the North American container trucking industry.”

The agreement also addresses wait times at terminals, the group claims.

“Both parties came together in good faith and we thank the CEOs who have signed today, we applaud your leadership, courage and cooperation,” said Patrick Rhodin, CTAO president.
