Toronto City outside workers will decide in the next few days whether to accept the new terms of their proposed collective debated during a marathon night of contract negotiations.

Local 416 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and the City of Toronto confirmed about 1:00 p.m. on Friday that a tentative agreement had been reached over a new contract affecting about 5,400 outside workers.
