Faculty members represented by the American Federation of Teachers, Massachusetts, yesterday ratified a three-year collective bargaining agreement with The Longy School of Music in Cambridge, ending a long-running labor dispute and averting a trial before an NLRB Administrative Law Judge.

A lengthy labor dispute between the Westin Providence Hotel and the union that represents its workers has been resolved by a contract agreement between the parties, averting a trial before an NLRB Administrative Law Judge.
