After nearly two months of striking, UNITE HERE Local 75, which represents food services workers at UTSC, has announced that it has ratified a collective agreement with Aramark.

The announcement was made on April 7 on the union’s Facebook page. The union calls the settlement “groundbreaking” and promises that details will follow.

Food services workers at York University, also represented by UNITE HERE Local 75 and working for Aramark, were on strike from February 2 to March 7. The agreement at York includes $15 per hour and benefits for both full-time and part-time employees.
