Members of CUPE local 1001 - the custodial, maintenance and food service workers of the University of Windsor in Ontario - have signed a new three year collective agreement.
The contract gives full-time workers a six per cent wage increase over three years - one per cent every six months. The wages of part timers wont increase, but they will receive a lump sum payment of $100 on December in each year in the contract.

The new contract kicks starts August 1, 1998.
