UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- Building and food service workers are going back to work with a new contract. Last month more than 700 workers represented by SEIU went on a three day strike.

They were looking for better wages and hours. Last week the university and union came up with a tentative agreement and workers voted yes. The contract is for four years and includes guaranteed wage increases as well as a signing bonus.
