Tentative deal reached between CUPE 3903, York U

A tentative deal has been reached between York University and the union representing contract faculty and teaching assistants.

The deal was announced late Friday following talks between the two sides and a provincial mediator.

The tentative contract settlement will be presented to members of CUPE Local 3903 and put to a formal ratification vote on Monday night.

According to CUPE Local 3903, 71 per cent of its 3,700 members voted against the last contract offer York presented to the union.

The bargaining committee was recommending members reject the offer, which included a 1.5-per-cent raise for contract faculty and teaching assistants. The union wanted a three per cent raise and improved job security.
