Clerical, health and technical workers at the University of Minnesota have ended their two-week old strike and agreed to a settlement offer by the U, union officials said early this afternoon.

The deal appears to be identical to the last offer made by the University. Union officials said they were not happy with the deal and will bring it to their members for a vote without recommendation from the negotiating committee.

"We are forced back to work because we can no longer sustain the loss of salary and a looming end to our health care coverage," one union leader said.
