Ottawa, ON – A tentative settlement on a new collective agreement for Carleton University’s administrative, technical and library staff was reached tonight between negotiating teams for Local 2424 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) and the university.

CUPE 2424 will hold a ratification vote tomorrow (Tuesday), when approximately 850 members will vote on the tentative deal.
