Toronto's 23,000 inside workers are voting today on what the city is calling its final contract offer.

While CUPE Local 79 agreed to put the offer to a vote, union officials are making no recommendation on whether it should be accepted.

Members have given the union a strike mandate but there are no immediate plans for a walkout. Union officials say that could change if the city tries to unilaterally impose terms that would erode workers' basic rights

Deputy Mayor Doug Holyday says the city's offer is “fair, reasonable and affordable,” and close to the deal that was accepted by the city's outside workers.

The inside workers include child-care workers, ambulance dispatchers, nurses, janitors and parks and recreation staff.

The two sides are in a legal strike-lockout position.
