Librarians and archivists ratify collective agreement

Unionized librarians and archivists at The University of Western Ontario (UWOFA-LA) have ratified a new collective agreement.

The UWOFA-LA bargaining unit voted 36 to 7, or 84 per cent in favour of the four-year deal. A tentative contract agreement was reached Tuesday, Sept. 20, following a 13-day strike that began Sept. 8.

The 51 unionized librarians and archivists at Western have been without a contract since June 30.
