Staff union contract finalized

STU-AerialThe St. Thomas University staff and administrative union has ratified their first collective agreement after members voted last night.
“Our members have been determined from day one, and that day goes as far back as 2010,” said staff union president Jennifer Burry in a press release.
The staff union had been in negotiations with the administration since July 2010. Last week, a mediator for the union and administration drafted a tentative collective agreement.
Burry is happy the union has finally made its first negotiated contract.
“It proves that with determination, you can reach a good collective agreement that contains job security, fair wages and recognition for the important work we do on a daily basis.”
The staff union represents 51 members including staff that works in office administration, facilities management, IT services, recruitment, academic advising, residence supervision, financial services and athletics.
