Support staff at Queen’s University in Kingston ratified a new agreement on August 18 in time for the new term, unlike many of their colleagues across the country.

The new contract will see wages increase by 8.5 per cent over four years with the increases weighted toward the end of the term.

The Tuition Assistance Fund for spouses and children of employees will increase from $60,000 per year to $100,000 over the four years.
