The union representing about 800 building and food service workers who went on strike at the University of Illinois this month says it has reached a tentative deal with the school. Adam Rosen is a spokesman for the Service Employees International Union. He says the union's bargaining committee recommends employees approve the four-year offer from the university. A vote is set for today and tomorrow. Rosen declined to provide details on the offer.
A University spokeswoman says administrators are optimistic the deal will be accepted.
The employees went on strike for three days earlier this month. The union negotiated with the university since last spring over wages and other issues.
