TORONTO - A tentative deal has been reached between the Globe and Mail and its unionized employees, averting a work stoppage at the newspaper in the final hour of negotiations.
Unifor â€” which represents journalists, ad sales people and administrative staff â€” says details of the agreement would not be provided until after it's ratified by union members.
Howard Law, director of the media sector at Unifor, tweeted that the bargaining team is unanimously recommending approval of the tentative deal.
The union had set a 4 p.m. strike deadline on Wednesday.
The Canadian Press is jointly owned by the parent companies of the Globe, the Toronto Star and Montreal's La Presse.
