representing journalists and other workers at The Inquirer, the
Philadelphia Daily News, and Philly.com voted Thursday night to approve a
two-year contract that cuts wages by 2.5 percent.
The vote, at a Center City hotel, was 200-35, according to union officials.
It was the culmination of a months-long effort by Interstate General
Media L.L.C. to lower its operating costs by wringing concessions out of
the 11 unions who represent workers in all departments of the two daily
newspapers and the website.
