CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) – The last two of four bargaining units representing workers at Southern Illinois University have signed off on new contracts with the Carbondale school.

Members of the Faculty Association and the Non-Tenure Track Faculty Association ratified the deals Wednesday.

Spokesmen for both groups say more than 94 percent of the votes cast were in favor of the contracts reached early last month.

The Faculty Association reached the deal Nov. 9, nearly a week after many of its members went on strike at the 20,000-student university.

The university’s board of trustees now must ratify the agreements before Chancellor Rita Cheng signs the documents.
