Students returning to class after Labour Day helped put pressure on Carleton University to reach a settlement with striking grounds and maintenance workers, members of CUPE 910.

On September 5, members met to ratify a three year contract with wage increases of 2 per cent retroactive to January 1999, 2 per cent January 2000 and 2 per cent January 2001.

Benefit achievements include vision care and dental improvements. The blue shirts as they are called on campus also won better meal allowance provisions and waterproof winter safety boots.

Carleton University has a reputation for holding off settlements to the last possible minute, threatening to disrupt classes.
