Nova Scotia Community College students can finally go to class today not having to worry about a strike.

The 930 NSCC teachers and support staff voted overwhelmingly in favour of a three-year contract with the school.

The Nova Scotia Teachers Union, which was representing the 930 staff in a legal strike position, announced Friday night the faculty voted 85 per cent in favour of the agreement while 97 per cent of the professional support unit gave it their vote of approval.

The agreement includes a 2.9 per cent salary increase in the first year, along with one per cent increases for the next two years.

The agreement also includes increasing the current salary grid by one per cent retroactive to Sept. 1, 2008.
