Striking professors set to vote on deal
A tentative agreement has been reached to end a strike by professors and other staff at the University of Manitoba.

The executive of the University of Manitoba Faculty Association is recommending acceptance of the package, which will be voted on Monday by members.

Details of the agreement have not been released but if it's accepted, classes are expected to return to normal tomorrow for upwards of 29,000 students.

The university says in a release issued late Sunday night that negotiators for both sides made progress in conciliated talks over the weekend on key issues that included teaching workload, job performance and job protection.

A tweet on the faculty association's website calls the deal fair.

The association went on strike Nov. 1 after being without a contract since March 31.
