Bargain committees for the University of Windsor and Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 1393 will return to the table Tuesday, according to the union.

"We are very pleased that the university has finally decided to resume bargaining," CUPE 1393 president Dean Roy said in a media release. "After two weeks of having our requests to sit down at the bargaining table with the university rejected, it is well past time to resolve our outstanding issues."

The 282 members of CUPE Local 1393 have been on strike since Sept. 8 after the two sides couldn't come together on a new collective agreement.

University president Alan Wildeman said the job evaluation process and bumping process are the two issues the school and union can't agree on.
