Union: Workers tentative deal reached with U of I

Posted:

Champaign, Ill. (AP) -- The union representing about 800 building and food service workers who went on strike at the University of Illinois this month says it has reached a tentative deal with the school.

 

Adam Rosen is a spokesman for the Service Employees International Union. He said Wednesday the union's bargaining committee recommended that employees approve the four-year offer from the university. A vote is set for Thursday and Friday.

 

Rosen declined to provide details on the offer.

 

A university spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

 

The employees went on strike for three days earlier this month. The union negotiated with the university for several months over wages and other issues.
