TORONTO — The Globe and Mail and a union representing some 250 employees have reached a tentative deal on a new collective agreement.

Unifor Local 87-M says workers in editorial, advertising and operations were to vote today on whether to ratify the pact with the national newspaper.

Paul Morse, local president, says the union will present the tentative agreement to its members today, who will have until 8 p.m. to cast their electronic ballot.

Lanna Crucefix, the newspaper's internal communications manager, confirmed by email that the company and Unifor reached a tentative settlement on the collective agreement, subject to ratification.

Morse says the union had received a strike mandate from unionized employees.

The key areas of dispute are diversity and inclusion, wages, job security, pension and working conditions, according to Unifor.

Founded in 1844, the Globe and Mail is owned by Woodbridge, the investment arm of the Thomson family, Canada's wealthiest family.
