After months of negotiations, members of CWA Local 4319 ratified a new three-year agreement with the University of Toledo earlier this month. Despite challenges caused by the pandemic, including the loss of bargaining team members to layoffs, the workers stood strong through months of negotiations and won wage increases, the recognition of Juneteenth as a paid holiday, reimbursement for safety shoes and winter footwear, and classifications for additional positions.
