A 22-day dining services’ worker strike officially ended Wednesday after employees voted overwhelmingly to approve a new contract with Harvard, capping off months of tense negotiations with the University.

Workers could return to dining halls as early as Thursday morning.

The final tally was 583-1 for union members in favor of the contract, according to Carlos Aramayo, financial secretary treasurer of UNITE HERE Local 26, the Boston-based union that represents Harvard’s dining services workers.

Under the new contract, Harvard will pay its full-time dining workers at least $35,000 a year.

With the vote by union members to approve the new contract, Harvard and its dining services employees brought an end to a historic strike that roiled campus, closed dining halls, and drew widespread national attention.
