Globe Union Approves Concessions

The Boston Newspaper Guild, the largest union at the Boston Globe, approved a concessions package by a 366 to 179 vote yesterday that includes pay cuts, unpaid vacation, and cuts in health and retirement benefits with a net value of $10 million.

The vote, which came a month after the union rejected an initial concessions package, could clear the way for the New York Times Co. to sell New England's largest newspaper.

All part of a tectonic shift in regional and national media which we got a small glimpse of, today, with the redesign of the Providence Journal.
