For Immediate Release
WATERLOO – Wilfrid Laurier University has reached a tentative deal for a new collective agreement with CUPE Local 926, the union representing approximately 110 custodial, grounds, and trades employees at Laurier’s Waterloo campus and Kitchener location.
The agreement was reached July 15, 2016 following negotiations that began in October, 2015. The deal must be ratified by the university’s Board of Governors and members of CUPE Local 926. Employees who are on strike will be recalled to work once the deal has been ratified by CUPE.
“We are pleased to have reached a tentative settlement,” said Max Blouw, president and vice-chancellor of Wilfrid Laurier University. “I would like to acknowledge the hard work that all parties contributed to reaching this agreement.”
