CUPE Local 1764 announced around 3:30 Tuesday morning, that a tentative agreement has been reached with Durham Region.

A ratification vote will be held today between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. at the union hall.

1,600 inside workers with Durham Region went on strike on June 19. The union represents workers in daycare, social services, court services, and health inspections as well as paramedics, but EMS workers were required to stay on the job.

The union says more details will be made available for members on their website. 

Durham Region says if the deal is approved by the workers, then by the regional council later this week, the employees could be back at work as early as Friday.
