The City University of New York employees represented by District Council 37 have voted to approve a contract deal with the university, the union announced Monday.

DC37 represents about 12,000 non-professional university employees. According to the union, 4,346 voted for the contract and 65 against it.

“Our CUNY members’ overwhelming vote of approval shows widespread support for this hard fought pact,” said DC37 executive director Henry Garrido in a statement.

In early June, DC37 and the university reached a deal that included 10.41 percent compounded raises retroactive to 2009. The university trustees approved it later that month.
The membership of the Professional Staff Congress, which represents over 25,000 professors and professional staff, is currently voting on its own tentative agreement. Its referendum will end August 3.
