U of M resident advisors end strike, accept offer from university housing department

University of Michigan resident advisors are back at work this morning after ending their nearly two-week strike.

Resident advisors at the University of Michigan are ending their strike after nearly two weeks.

Members voted late Monday night to accept an offer from U of M's housing department.

The offer gives resident advisors priority COVID-19 testing and a one-time payment of $200 that can be used on campus, according to the Michigan Daily. They'll also regularly get personal protective equipment including masks, bandanas and face shields.

The university's graduate employees also recently returned to the job.

Both groups stopped work over the university's handling of COVID-19 on campus.
