Lakehead University Strike Over

CAW Local 229 members at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario have overwhelmingly ratified a new collective agreement that provides wage increases, strong outsourcing protection and brings to an end a bitter strike.

The CAW represents 60 workers at the university who had been on strike since April 11. The workers, many of whom are women, include custodial, grounds and maintenance employees. They voted 94 per cent in favour of the new agreement.
