Western Washington University ratifies new contract

Members at Western Washington University yesterday ratified their new contract on a vote of 180 to accept and 18 to reject. There were five challenged ballots.

That’s a 91 percent yes vote. There were 408 eligible voters, so turnout was 48 percent. Voting took place onsite. The WWU elections committee tallied the ballots Wednesday night.

To get to where they wanted, the WWU Bargaining Team agreed to a one-year contract that would take effect July 1, 2012. During the first year of the biennium, the terms and conditions of the current (2009-2011) contract would apply.
