Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 3903 Unit 1 voted 750 to 37 to accept the new offer, while Unit 3 voted 175 to 16 in favour of the new deal, which took weeks to hammer out according to union leaders. Just 42 per cent of Unit 1 workers voted, while only 23 per cent of Unit 3 workers cast a ballot.
Terms of the new agreement weren't immediately shared.
CUPE 3903 chairman Faiz Ahmed previously told CBC News that the university has agreed to several measures, including: a tuition reduction for international graduate students, an increase of the overall funding package for graduate assistants by $2,000 and a tuition freeze for the length of the collective agreement.
The strike, which began on March 3, initially suspended all classes at the university. Many classes were restarted, however, after contract faculty accepted a new deal on March 9.
York is one of the largest universities in Canada, with around 47,000 undergraduate students and another 6,000 graduate students.
