Durham Region inside workers who have been on strike since June 19 have ratified a new collective agreement.

In posting the news on its web site, CUPE Local 1764 did no indicate how many of the approximately 1,600 affected workers had voted in favour of the deal.

The agreement will now go the regional council for a vote, and if approved, the municipality east of Toronto has said employees could be back at work as early as Friday.

No details of the deal reached with a mediator early Tuesday have been released.

The employees covered by the agreement provide services in such areas as child care, court services, public health inspections and traffic operations.

In a release from Durham Region, officials say that (pending approval from council) programs and services could return to normal operations on Friday, but parents are asked to take note that the Region's six directly operated child-care centres would open on Monday, July 14. The Sunderland Early Learning and Child Care Centre will resume services in the fall, as previously scheduled.

For any further assistance, please contact the Social Services Department, Children's Services Division at childrensservices@durham.ca or 905-666-6238.

    Remember folks: Any outcome that isn't the union getting exactly what they want is FASCISM and a failure of democracy. No matter how unreasonable or unaffordable their demands really are.
