Baltimore Sun Guild Approves New Contract With Wage Freeze

Newsroom, advertising, and other employees at the Baltimore Sun approved a three-year contract that raises the company’s contribution to employee 401(k) plans but also freezes wages for the first two years, the Sun reports.

The third year will bring raises of about $10 a week.

The guild had recommended the yes vote, saying that the offer was better than what other journalists had gotten in recent years.

“We believe this is a good deal for all parties involved,” Timothy E. Ryan, president, publisher and CEO of the Baltimore Sun Media Group, said in a statement. “We have very positive momentum with our business plan at this time, and we are pleased to have the entire team stay focused on the significant opportunities for growth at hand.”
