Enbridge workers who have been on strike since late May are set to vote on a tentative agreement on Monday.

Unifor Local 999 had previously said inadequate compensation from a profitable employer drove union members to take legal action. 

Members started picketing at the Dawn Hub in Dawn-Euphemia on May 25.

A tentative agreement was reached ahead of the weekend and the membership is expected to vote in two groups on June 13. Voting in Cambridge will take place at 10 a.m. while voting in Petrolia will begin at 3 p.m.

Local 999 represents more than 100 workers at the storage, transmission, and operations at Enbridge Gas facilities in Ontario.
