Fans of the movie reviews at NYC’s The Village Voice can relax. Talk of a strike at the alternative weekly has abated after negotiators for employees and management reached a tentative agreement on a new contract last night, union spokesman Graham Rayman said in a statement. He added that the terms would not be disclosed until they’re presented to union members for their approval today. Employees’ three-year contract expired yesterday. They authorized a strike as the paper’s owner, Village Voice Media, sought cuts in health and retirement benefits. Negotiations in 2005 and 2008 followed a similar pattern with the union preparing to strike and agreeing to new terms at the last minute.
