15-year Contract Ends Almost Two Years Of Negotiations





The New York Post has signed a 15-year contract with its pressmen’s
union, the tabloid reported this week.


The paper and the New York Newspaper Printing Pressmen’s Local No.
2 agreed that the number of pressmen employed per shift will remain
the same for the duration of the contract. The agreement, which was
ratified Sunday by the union, gives the pressmen 2% raises each year
until 2014.



‘They get job and wage security for the next 15 years,’ said John
Amann, vice president of labor relations to the Post. ‘And we get
some relief on our production manning and some flexibility with color
manning.’


The deal ends negotiations that have been ongoing since October 1998.
The Post, currently colorless, is scheduled to begin operating its
color presses sometime next year.
