Follow Up to the Boston Globe Situation

JUST IN TO TSMW: It looks like the Boston Globe may be able to continue operations after all!

The latest is here.

It appears the details of the new deal won't be released until later this morning. From the above link at the Times' website:

A Globe spokesman, Robert Powers, released a statement saying, “We have completed negotiations with the Guild but have agreed not to release any details until the leadership speaks with Guild members on Thursday, May 7.”

People briefed on the talks, who were granted anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, told The Times that a deal had been reached around 3 a.m., but said they did not know the details.

The Times Company reached tentative deals with all of the Globe’s other unions by Monday morning, leaving only the Guild, the largest bargaining unit, which represents more than 600 Globe employees in the newsroom, advertising and other departments.

More on this story when the details come out...
