BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Globe has reached a tentative agreement with its largest union.

The
Globe and the Boston Newspaper Guild issued e-mail statements late
Tuesday announcing the deal. Guild members are set to vote on the
agreement July 20.

Under the agreement, the Globe will save $10
million through salary and benefit reductions. The agreement includes a
salary reduction of just less than 6 percent and changes the langage in
contracts regarding job security.

The 23 percent wage cut will
remain in place until the Guild votes in July. In the meantime,
employees will receive a lump sum payment to partially compensate for
wages lost.

Guild President Dan Totten said further details would be available at a union meeting Wednesday.
