The Niagara Parks Commission and its employees, members of the Ontario Public Service Employees' Union Local 217, through conciliation efforts undertaken by the province, have reached a tentative contract settlement. The new deal, which still must be ratified by both sides, includes wage increases and improved working conditions for park employees, and provides operational efficiencies for the commission. "I applaud the negotiating teams from both sides for working to ensure a mutually beneficial agreement was reached," said NPC general manager John Kernahan.

Once ratified, the new agreement will be in effect from Nov. 1, 2006 to Oct. 31, 2009.
