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.
