Striking radio workers in Saint John, N.B., reach tentative deal with company

SAINT JOHN, N.B. - A media union says striking radio station workers in Saint John, N.B., have reached a tentative agreement with Halifax-based MBS Radio.

The Canadian Media Guild said in a news release Tuesday that the workers have negotiated a four-year deal that includes contract language on job security, scheduling and methods for dealing with disputes.

The union also says the agreement includes a signing bonus and new wage scales.

The employees are expected to be back on the job as of June 16 if they ratify the agreement.

The strike began almost two years ago when the seven union members at K-100, CFBC and Kool 98 walked off the job after attempting to negotiate their first contract with MBS Radio.

The workers launched their own online radio station during the strike.
