We have a contract

Members of the News Guild of Maine voted unanimously Friday to ratify a contract with MaineToday Media.

By a vote of 89-0, members approve the two-year deal. The union has been working without a contract under imposed terms and conditions since the sale of the newspapers in June 2015.

This vote shows that the Guild remains a strong representative of the people who produce the newspapers, This puts an end to a period of uncertainty for MTM employees, and puts us on a solid footing going forward.

Stay tuned for more information about the new contract. Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote.

We are still putting the final touches on the contract, but we feel it’s substantially done and we are ready to schedule a vote.

A recent draft of the contract is available for review, although some minor aspects are still being finalized.
