Where’s my $1,000 signing bonus?

This Magazine Staff

The CBC and its employees have reached a tentative agreement to end the 50-day-old lockout. Terms of the deal include a $1,000 signing bonus for each worker, a 9.5% cap of contract workers on the staff and a wage increase of 12.6% over the life of the contract (through March, 2009), according to the Canadian Media Guild union.

Sounds like a victory for CBC workers, not to mention for hockey fans! Glad to hear it.
