It will be business as usual at Western University.

The university sent out a release Monday night saying a tentative deal has been reached with its librarians and archivists, avoiding a potential strike.

The university’s negotiating team, as well as UWOFA-LA, the union representing the workers, are both recommending their respective parties ratify the tentative agreement.

Terms of the agreement will not be disclosed publicly until after ratification.
