Union workers in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser newsroom ratified a new five-year contract with the company on Thursday.

Union members voted 61 to 17 in favor of the contract with 83 percent of members voting, the union said in an e-mail to members.

The new contract includes a 10 percent pay increase over five years and a sick-leave benefit for part-time workers.

Union members will pay a greater share of their medical insurance premium.

"This is a good agreement for both parties and provides labor stability over many years," said Dennis Francis, president and publisher of the Star-Advertiser.

Members of the guild's bargaining committee had recommended approval.
