Dow Jones union approve new contract agreement

With an overwhleming "yes" vote, the Dow Jones membership of IAPE, The Newspaper Guild-CWA, has ratified a new three-year contract with Dow Jones & Company.

As reported by the the IAPE Election Committee the "yes" votes totaled 831 while the "no" voters totaled 90: 90.23% in favor of ratification and 9.77% opposed.

From the union's bulletin: "Our commitment has to be unchanged— and unbreakable: This is your union and it exists solely to defend and promote your interests. That fight continues long after the headlines and contract rallies fade. For IAPE to be successful, you have to remain engaged and active."
