The YP bargaining committee, from left to right: Gary Lawrence, M.M. Smith, J.R Rhoades, and Tony Maronski.

CWA District 3 reached a tentative three-year agreement covering 238 workers at YP Holdings.

Among other gains, the tentative contract provides for a fairer, updated compensation plan that allows for members to be rewarded for their efforts.

At the start of bargaining, District 3 Vice President Richard Honeycutt called on YP, "the largest yellow pages in the world, to do the right thing and take care of our members, the ones who are the face of this company and the ones that drive the revenue."

The contract was presented to members for a ratification vote.
