Strike averted as tentative agreements reached for University of Windsor staff

Collective agreement
Deals will be presented to employees: Unifor

Tentative agreements were reached on Sept. 7 between four Unifor bargaining units and the University of Windsor, narrowly avoiding a strike at the university.

“I congratulate the bargaining teams and all members for remaining united throughout this round of negotiations,” says Jerry Dias, Unifor national president.

The tentative agreements will be brought to the members of the bargaining units for ratification votes in the coming days, says the union.

About 425 workers represented are members of Unifor, Locals 2458 and 195. They work on campus as full-time and part-time administrative staff, operational engineers and special constables, says unifor.

Unifor is Canada’s largest union in the private sector, representing 315,000 workers in every major area of the economy.
