Buffalo—The 25 housekeepers at D’Youville College ratified their first contract on January 23, 2015. They voted to form a union with SEIU Local 200United in August 2014. In addition to increased vacation and holiday time, the housekeepers will see a $2 wage increase over the two-year term of the contract and negotiated for paid sick leave, a benefit they never had before.
