Sodexo workers OK contract

Food service workers on the Pittsburgh campus have ratified a contract that increases wages $1.40/hour over the course of the three-year agreement.

The Service Employees International Union 32BJ represents 230 dining hall workers in Litchfield Towers and Sutherland Hall who are employed by Sodexo, the University’s food service contractor.

The deal, which extends through February 2019, was ratified March 30, Sam Williamson, assistant area director at SEIU Local 32BJ, told the University Times.

The employees had been working under an extension to their prior three-year agreement, which expired at the end of February, during the negotiations.

No action has been taken on a separate proposal that would offer approximately 125 nonunion food service workers on campus an opportunity to join SEIU 32BJ via a card-check, Williamson said.
