Newspaper Guild Reaches Tentative Two Year Agreement
Posted: 2/1/2013  |  By: The Newspaper Guild of Greater Philadelphia
On January 31, 2013, the Newspaper Guild Bargaining Committee reached a tentative agreement for a new two-year contract to begin at ratification. Although this contract was bargained early to forestall possible threats to the future of the company, upon ratification, the company will be contractually obligated to print both papers as daily papers (7 days a week for the Inquirer, 6 days a week for the Daily News) for the duration of this two-year contract.  

In addition, the company agreed that for the first year of the contract, there will be no layoffs of Guild members.
