A month-long strike that has curtailed essential services, including ambulance service in Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry, has ended following the ratification of agreements between CUPE and the city of Cornwall.

All four groups, which include paramedics, library staff, and inside and outside workers, ratified the agreements. At its regular meeting on Monday, June 11, Cornwall City Council also ratified the agreements.

The City of Cornwall looks forward to employees returning to work on Tuesday morning, at which time many city services and programs will resume as normal.

On Wednesday, June 13, the Cornwall Aquatic Centre, Richelieu Day Care and the Winchester satellite office of Social and Housing Services will re-open. More information will follow about specific programs. The Cornwall Public Library board also ratified the agreement with its CUPE staff.
