A nine-week strike at the Canadian Hearing Society could be coming to an end. A tentative deal has been reached with the union, which its members will vote on later this week.

Over 200 workers were on strike, and the earliest date they’ll be back to work is Monday. Sick leave was the main sticking point in the contract negotiations.

Both MP Jamie Schmale and MPP Laurie Scott raised concerns during the nine-week strike, saying it was having a damaging effect on the local deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
