Parties reach tentative agreement in Halifax Chronicle Herald strike

The Halifax Chronicle Herald and the union representing the paper's striking newsroom workers have reached a tentative agreement which could end their 18-month-old labour dispute.

The Saltwire Network, which owns the Herald, and the Halifax Typographical Union say a deal was reached Saturday after two days of mediation ordered by the Nova Scotia government.

Employees still must vote on whether to accept the agreement, which is expected to happen in the coming days.

The terms of the deal have not been released.

The Nova Scotia government appointed a mediator in July to help the two sides reach a settlement.
