Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 2009 City of Toronto inside and outside workers strike (also known as the 2009 Toronto strike) was a legal strike action that was undertaken by the Toronto Civic Employees Union, a subsidiary of the Canadian Union of Public Employees in the city of Toronto. It involved approximately 24,000 city employees. On June 22 at midnight Toronto municipal workers belonging to 2 separate unions (CUPE Local 416 - representing the outside workers, and CUPE Local 79 - representing the inside workers) went on strike following six months negotiating with the municipality over contract renewal. The union said that the main issue for the strike was requests, from the city, for concessions from the union in the new contract. According to the CBC, the main issues were regard changes to job security, seniority and the banking of sick days. The previous contract allowed some union members to bank unused sick days and cash them out upon retirement. The city proposed contract was to disallow the practise.
