Negotiations between the University of Windsor and CUPE Local 1393 will resume Friday.

This development comes after discussions broke off between the two parties late Saturday.

On Wednesday, CUPE national president Paul Moist and CUPE Local 1393 president Dean Roy requested a meeting with university president Alan Wildeman.

The group met for more than an hour to discuss the key outstanding issues.

As a result, a mediator helping with the negotiations has called the two sides back to the table starting tomorrow.

CUPE 1393 represents 281 technical, trades and professional staff.

They have been on strike since Sept. 8.
