A new three-year contract between The University of Toledo and the Communication Workers of America Local 4319 will be celebrated Thursday, Sept. 4, with a signing ceremony at 1 p.m. in Libbey Hall on Main Campus.

The contract, which runs from Jan. 1, 2014, through the end of 2016, has been approved by the UT Board of Trustees and CWA members.

CWA employees receive a 2.5 percent wage increase in the first year of the contract, which was effective July 14, and a 1 percent wage increase in the second year, which will begin Jan. 1, 2015.

The contract calls for a reopening of wage negotiations in year three and also includes a lump sum retroactive wage component.
