Marilyn Boutilier and UW reach settlement

Marilyn Boutilier, a UW Food Services employee who was fired in December for <a href="">giving away free muffins and sandwiches</a>, has reached a settlement with the university. The agreement means Boutilier will forgo arbitration and will drop her public campaign to be reinstated.&nbsp;</p>

The incident resulted in a significant public response — a WPIRG letter to UW demanding her reinstatement recieved 100 student signatures, and 300 total signatures. 

Details of the settlement are to remain confidential, but according to a recent WPIRG press release, Boutilier believes that taking the settlement was the best option.
