Torstar Makes Tentative Agreement with Union over Digital Journalists

Torstar Corp. has struck a tentative agreement with the union that represents journalists at the Toronto Star over the classification of new digital journalist jobs. Unifor said to members at Torstar that the compromise allows the company to 'experiment' with its digital strategy until the expiry of the existing contract at the end of 2016. The most recent digital job postings will be considered temporary positions with lower paying starting wages for the duration of the agreement. The deal provides a short-term resolution to concerns expressed by Toronto Star reporters over a proposed two-tiered status separating online reporters from the rest of the company's journalists.
