DETROIT NEWSPAPER AGENCY REACHES TENTATIVE AGREEMENT WITH A 10th UNION
 DETROIT, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Detroit Newspaper Agency has reached a tentative agreement on non-economic issues with a 10th union, leaving only two of its employee unions without any tentative agreements.
 The agency and Mailers Local 2040, which represents 330 full-time mailroom employees, reached an agreement on non-economic issues Monday afternoon. Details of the agreement were not revealed. The mailroom workers operate equipment that bundles newspapers and inserts ad supplements into the Sunday comics.
 Yesterday, tentative non-economic agreements were reached with Teamsters Local 372, which represents 1,175 circulation department employees; 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.
 Earlier, tentative agreements covering both economic and non- economic issues were reached with five skilled trade unions.
 Still without any tentative agreements are 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.
 Tim Kelleher, DNA senior vice president/Labor Relations, said that once non-economic agreements are reached with the remaining unions, the DNA will conduct economic bargaining with the Metropolitan Council of Newspaper Unions, which represents all of the unions that lack economic agreements.
 Negotiators for the Detroit Newspaper Agency and the unions have extended the contracts until midnight tonight, while the talks continue. The contracts affect about 2,700 agency employees.
 No strike deadlines have been set by any of the unions, and publication of The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press has continued during the contract talks.
 Separate talks are being held by The News and the Free Press with the Newspaper Guild over contracts for 500 news/editorial employees.
 The DNA prints, distributes and sells advertising for The News and the Free Press under the terms of their Joint Operating Agreement.
