TORONTO - The union representing workers at Transforce subsidiary Dynamex Couriers has reached a tentative agreement with the company, avoiding a possible strike.

Details of the agreement were not immediately available.

Unifor Local 114 represents roughly 180 workers at the company.

The workers served 72-hour strike notice on Monday after talks stalled.

They were prepared to walk off the job starting at 10:30 a.m. ET on Thursday if a deal was not reached.

The union says details of the tentative agreement will be published after a ratification vote on Saturday.
