KINGSTON Locals 229, 254 and 1302 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees have reached tentative agreements with Queens University this morning with the last one signed at 10:00am.

Details of the deals will not be released until ratification by the parties. There will be no work stoppage. Ratification will take place within the next two weeks.

I am extremely pleased with the positive conclusion resulting from the hard work by all of the bargaining committees, says Richard Weatherdon, Associate Vice Principal (Human Services), Queens University.

I am very pleased with the tentative contracts and absolutely thrilled about the joint commitment to improve labour relations, says John Lepine, CUPE National Representative.

The settlements follow marathon bargaining that commenced Wednesday morning.

CUPE 229 (Trades, Custodial and Maintenance), CUPE 254 (Technicians) and CUPE 1302 (Library Technicians) represent 430 workers at Queens University.
