The terms of the memorandum of settlement, ratified by CUPE Local 1989, the Mississauga Library Board and City Council include:
“Delaying the effective date of wage increases in 2015 covered the cost of additional annual wage increases in 2016-18. This agreement is fair to both employees and taxpayers,” said Baker.
