Guild Signs Pay Cut Deal That Will Ensure The Inquirer & Daily News Stays In Print For At Least 2 More Years

KYW: The union that represents reporters and editors at the Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News and philly.com have approved a new contract with the publications’ owners, which includes across-the-board wage cuts. The Newspaper Guild was the last of the company’s 11 unions to approve a new deal, which the company said it required to remain viable. Members of the Newspaper Guild of Greater Philadelphia ratified the contract on Thursday night with a vote of 200 to 35. “I think my members were able to breathe a sign of relief after the votes were counted,” said union executive director Bill Ross today. He says union members took a leap of faith in accepting the two-year deal, which includes layoff protections for the first year and a guarantee that the Daily News and Inquirer will stay in print for the entire term.
