Grinnell student employees approve union contract

union yesFood service employees at a Iowa liberal arts college voted Tuesday whether to make their six-month-old union one of the few unions for undergraduate employees in the country to ratify a contract with a private college or university.

The Union of Grinnell Student Dining Workers announced Monday that it had reached a tentative agreement with Grinnell College administrators after nearly four months of bargaining over an initial contract for students working in the college’s food services.

Members approved the tentative agreement Tuesday night by a vote of 33 to 1.
