Teamsters Local 320 has reached a tentative contract agreement with the University of Minnesota, avoiding a planned strike this week by about 1,500 service workers.

"Members of the bargaining unit over the course of the three years will see a minimum of 13 percent pay increase, but as well, which was extremely important, was a $20 an hour minimum wage," said union secretary-treasurer and principal officer Brian Aldes.

Aldes said the agreement also ensures summer workers will get a minimum number of work hours per week, extends health benefits and protects the seniority of service workers.
