union representing workers at the parent company of The Inquirer, the
Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com has agreed to begin early
bargaining on a new contract as management of the media company
continues to seek ways to cut expenses.
The Newspaper Guild of Greater Philadelphia told its members Thursday
that it agreed to resume bargaining with Interstate General Media
L.L.C. on Friday afternoon, but stressed that should talks break down,
the 550 members it represents would be protected under the current
contract, which expires in October.
