Striking union members at the University of Windsor may be a step closer to returning to work after an announcement that both sides will return to the negotiating table.

“We are very pleased that the university has finally decided to resume bargaining,” said Dean Roy, President of CUPE 1393. “After two weeks of having our requests to sit down at the bargaining table with the university rejected, it is well past time to resolve our outstanding issues.”

CUPE 1393’s 282 members have been on strike since September 8th.

While bargaining will resume tomorrow morning, UWindsor President Dr. Alan Wildeman released a statement this morning addressing the union’s outstanding issues.

CUPE 1393 represents 282 skilled trades and professional staff at the University of Windsor, providing a wide range of services from carpentry and plumbing to nursing services, information technology, lab support and hazardous materials handling.
