Article content

University of Ottawa support staff have signed a three-year agreement with the university after reaching a deal in late October that brought an end to a strike.

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) and the university announced the tentative agreement Oct. 29 after mediated talks.

On Monday, the university announced the executive committee of its board of governors approved the agreement Nov. 10 and union members voted by electronic ballot to ratify the deal.

The three-year agreement is retroactive to May 1, 2019 and expires April 30, 2022.

“I fully appreciate that this current round of bargaining, which involved labour disruption, has been difficult. I want to thank negotiation teams of both parties for the efforts invested over the past few weeks. Our support staff are at the heart of uOttawa’s successes and their contribution is greatly valued,” said Jacques Frémont, president and vice-chancellor of the university.

After 19 months, negotiations had broken down, with the main sticking points being health benefits and prescription drug coverage.
