After days of marathon talks, NPR and the SAG-AFTRA labor union have finally landed a tentative contract deal.
The news came in the early hours of Sunday morning.
NPR employs over 800 people. The union says 433 of them are SAG-AFTRA members. Their last contract expired on June 30. It was extended until midnight Friday and stretched again until midnight Saturday. The union said an agreement was reached at 12:08 a.m. ET Sunday.
The tentative agreement would cover the next three years. It still needs to go to NPR’s unionized employees for approval.
