PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) has reached an agreement on a new contract with Teamsters Local 251.

The union voted in favor of ratifying a new contract, which a school spokesperson said, “reflects and advances RISD’s commitment to social equity and inclusion.”

Workers were on strike for weeks fighting for higher pay, claiming the school failed to give a general wage increase or allow the employees to bargain.

The union represents 62 custodians, groundskeepers and movers.
