 DETROIT NEWSPAPER AGENCY, UNIONS RECESS TALKS
 DETROIT, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released this


morning by the Detroit Newspaper Agency (DNA):
 Negotiators for the Detroit Newspaper Agency and its employee unions recessed talks early this morning after agreeing to extend the current contracts until 4 p.m. today.
 During the course of more than 14 hours of bargaining that started Sunday morning, the DNA reached tentative agreements on non-economic issues with four unions:
 -- Teamsters Local 372, which represents 1,175 circulation department employees, the largest number of employees represented by any DNA union;
 -- International Typographical Union Local 18, which represents about 130 composing room employees;
 -- Graphic Communications International Union Local 289, which represents about 35 photo engravers; and
 -- Newspaper Guild Local 22, which represents 80 DNA maintenance workers.
 The agency had earlier reached tentative agreements with five skilled trades unions. Those agreements cover both economic and non-economic issues.
 Details of the agreements were not divulged.
 There are not yet any tentative agreements with Mailers Local 2040, which represents 330 full-time mailroom employees; Graphic Communications International Union Local 13-N, which represents 300 press room employees; and Graphic Communications International Union Local 13, which represents 48 paper handlers.
 Separate talks are being held by The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press with the Newspaper Guild over contracts for news/editorial employees.
 Tim Kelleher, DNA senior vice president/Labor Relations, said no strike deadline has been set by any union, and said he anticipated that no such action would be taken as long as negotiations continued.
 The agency and the two Detroit newspapers it publishes have continued normal operations throughout the talks, which affect nearly 2,700 employees of the DNA.
 The DNA prints, distributes and sells advertising for The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press under the terms of their joint operating agreement.
