SGT. BYKO REPORTS The Newspaper Guild negotiators reached a tentative agreement with the company on non-economic issues, after a day-long bargaining session that ended about 12:45 a.m. The session started at 12:45 p.m. Sunday. Local President Henry J. Holcomb said critical economic issues, including the pension, remain on the table.The company indicated it may not be able to meet with the Guild until Wednesday because it has to meet with other unions. Holcomb said he will press to meet with the company earlier. There is an agreement on the key seniority issue, which “basically preserves” seniority, said Holcomb, adding that he plans to call a membership meeting to explain some of the details.The pension issue has not yet been discussed,” he said, adding that health and welfare payments have yet to be explored. During Sunday’s sessions, Daily News Editor Michael Days and Inquirer Editor Bill Marimow joined the talks for several periods.Union leadership will meet Monday to evaluate the agreement so far and to plan for the next session.
