Good labour news for the Old Port

There's good news for the Old Port.

A tentative deal has been ratified by about 300 workers by a slim margin of just over 50 per cent. 

The new deal includes a pay raise of 12 per cent over five years, as well as additional vacation days for part-time workers.

The unionized workers went on strike in May, which led to the closure of attractions, including the Clock Tower Beach and the Science Centre.

Activities at the Science Centre will resume starting Thursday, Nov. 10th.

Roughly 20 seasonal skating rink workers, however, will remain on strike after rejecting the deal.
