From a TPL Blog Post:

The Toronto Public Library Board reached a tentative agreement with the Toronto Public Library Workers’ Union Local 4948, which represents the library’s 2,300 library workers.

Once the agreement has been ratified by both the Local 4948 membership and by the Toronto Public Library Board, library services will resume.
