GUELPH, Ont. - A tentative agreement was reached early this morning between the union representing University of Guelph trades, maintenance and service workers and university management, averting a strike that would have affected Guelph University students.

“We are happy that we managed to reach a deal without a strike,” said Janice Folk-Dawson, president of CUPE 1334. “Our executive will be recommending the deal to our members for ratification.”

The workers, who are members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, will vote on the tentative deal on October 28th. Details of the deal will not be released until after ratification. The workers’ last contract expired on April 30th, 2005.
