Unionized workers at the Globe and Mail vote to approve new contract

  • Print

TORONTO - Unionized workers at the Globe and Mail newspaper have voted to approve a new contract.

The three-year deal includes annual wage increases of one, two and two per cent over the life of the agreement.

The union said major issues in dispute had involved restructuring of job security provisions and a company proposal to have journalists write advertorial copy for advertisers.

"Our success in fending off the Globe's advertorial proposal protects the integrity and reputation of our journalists and of the Globe and Mail itself," said Sue Andrew, chairwoman of the Globe unit.

Some 84 per cent of those voting backed the new contract.

Unifor represents some 374 journalists, ad sales people and administrative staff at the media company.

The deal was reached Wednesday with the help of a mediator, just ahead of a strike deadline set by the union.

The Canadian Press is jointly owned by the parent companies of the Globe, the Toronto Star and Montreal's La Presse.
