A labour agreement has been reached between 22 cleaning staff at Billy Bishop Airport in Toronto and Porter FBO Ltd.

The airline says the workers, who are represented by the National Organized Workers union, voted 88 per cent in favour of the new contract.

Porter FBO president Robert Deluce says the “fair and reasonable agreement” means that they were able to avoid a strike or lockout.

Details of the deal were not released.

Meanwhile, 22 employees who refuel planes for Porter Airlines are still on strike after talks broke down nearly three months ago.

The workers have been off the job since Jan. 10 after management and the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union couldn’t agree over wages.
