Dear Guild member,

The Guild contract with PN Purchaser Co., L.L.C. was ratified tonight by a vote of 287 in support of the agreement and 38 in opposition.

The results were certified by Election Chairperson Rita Dooling.

We thank the membership for a strong turnout and for voting overwhelmingly in support of a contract that includes concessions.

The agreement will not take effect until PN Purchaser Co., L.L.C closes on the sale of the newspapers which is expected to occur Aug. 31.

We will keep you updated with any new information as it develops.

If you have any questions, please direct them to Guild Executive Director Bill Ross at 267-240-8540 or

In solidarity,
Dan Gross, President
Bill Ross, Executive Director, and the Executive Board of the Newspaper Guild of Greater Philadelphia/CWA Local 38010
