Globe and Mail reaches tentative deal with workers

There appears to be an agreement in principle between the Globe and Mail and its journalists, sales and administrative staff.

Several of the paper's staff members have been tweeting news of the agreement — and their relief — in the minutes before a 4 p.m. strike deadline.

There's no word on what's in the tentative deal — but union representatives are recommending the deal be ratified.

The workers overwhelmingly rejected an offer from management last week.

Wage cuts and job security were among the key sticking points in the dispute.

Another contentious issue was a demand form management that some editorial staff write "advertorial" copy — essentially, the journalists would have been forced to write custom content paid for by advertisers.
