After nearly three years of negotiations, employees at Boston Globe Media Partners on Friday approved a new three-year contract that provides for annual raises and protects overtime pay and arbitration rights, according to the company and the Boston Newspaper Guild.

Guild members will receive an immediate 3 percent raise and $1,000 bonus for signing the contract, followed by 2 percent raises in the second and third years, according to a statement from the union, which represents more than 300 members of the newsroom, advertising and production staff for The Boston Globe,, and STAT News.
