A spokesman for the Communciations, Energy and Paperworkers Union has confirmed a tenative agreement has been worked out, with Glacier Ventures, the company operating the Alaska Highway News.
Rob Munro says the deal covers about 120 employees at six BC papers…three in the Kootenays and others in Fort St. John, Dawson Creek and Prince Rupert.
They have been without a working agreement, since the end of April and, they voted in favor of strike action to back their contract demands, on September 4th.
The Union then filed 72-hour strike notice yesterday morning, prior to confirming the tentative deal this morning.
Mr. Munro says details of the pending agreement will not be released, until separate rank and file ratification votes have been completed, at all six newspapers.
He expects the votes in Fort St. John and Dawson Creek, to be held early next month.
