Shrewsbury Cafeteria Workers ratified a three year agreement unanimously. The new contract has 2 percent raises each year. It also includes new labor/management meetings, some additions to the bereavement policy and other language improvements. Most importantly, management made no attempts at take-aways and no threats to privatize services as has taken place in the past.
