Guild members vote to ratify tentative agreement

The tentative agreement between The Buffalo News and the Guild was ratified today by a vote of 80-7.

The three-year agreement, ending in July 2021, extends the current contract with no wage cuts or givebacks.

The News also agreed to the Guild’s pilot project proposal to create a new job class, digital content producer, and restricts online freelancers from regular beat coverage, stories with high-anticipated news value, enterprise reporting or subject matter requiring ongoing coverage.
