Tuesday, February 24, UMG members of the Pekin Daily Times unit voted to ratify a new two-year agreement. The vote occurred at two meetings – noon and 6:00 p.m. – held in a private room of Goodfella’s restaurant.
The agreement includes a signing bonus, a ceiling on health care premium increases, continuation of outsourcing limitations and the retention of the commission sales program for current advertising sales representatives. A big thank you to our bargaining team there (shout out to Sharon Harris and Miranda Henderson!).
