SINGAPORE - Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) signed two agreements with the Creative Media and Publishing Union at Furama Hotel on Monday.

The agreements, which will expire in Dec 2015, covered SPH's move to a performance-linked bonus scheme, parental care leave for employees, and new salary ranges.

The Creative Media and Publishing Union was formed last month and aims to be an industry-wide union.

It is a result of a merger between SPH's two in-house unions, the Singapore Press Holdings Employees' Union and Singapore National Union of Journalists.
