Strike averted, tentative deal reached at Windsor Star

May 4, 2018

WINDSOR – A tentative deal has been reached with Postmedia just hours before a strike deadline at the Windsor Star.

“We are relieved to have reached a tentative agreement that we can recommend to our members who have been serving this community by providing high-quality daily local news for decades,” said Julie Kotsis, Chair of the Joint Council of Unions, which represents members of Unifor Locals 240 and 517-G, as well as Communications Workers of America-Canada Local 30553.

The Council collectively represents 180 members who work in the newsroom, advertising, business office, sales and service, pressroom and mailroom.

Details of the tentative agreement will not be made public until after workers have a chance to be briefed and vote on it at a ratification meeting for all members on Sunday.
