This article is more than 11 years old.

The Boston Globe’s largest union, the Boston Newspaper Guild, met with the paper’s corporate owners, The New York Times Co., for more than twelve hours Monday. The talks did not wrap up until after midnight.

Talks are expected to resume Tuesday at 3 p.m. on ways to get $10 million in savings The Times says it needs from the Guild in order to keep the Globe afloat.

The two sides talked late into the night but failed to come to an agreement over another way to save the money. The Times already cut wages 23 percent, saying it had to take that drastic measure after the union rejected a proposed deal.
