MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Newsroom employees at the Star Tribune have approved extending their pay freeze for another 18 months.
Newspaper Guild co-chair David Chanen (CHAY'-nen) says union members voted overwhelmingly for the contract extension Thursday. He did not release a specific vote.
Chanen says when the 18-month extension expires, Star Tribune Newspaper Guild members will have had their pay frozen for 4.5 years.
The Newspaper Guild of the Twin Cities represents 260 employees at the Star Tribune, mainly in the newsroom. Their contract had expired Sunday.
It was the Guild's first contract vote since the Star Tribune, Minnesota's largest newspaper, emerged from bankruptcy protection in September 2009.
