Striking workers at publishing house HarperCollins have approved a tentative agreement reached last week and are returning to work.
Their walkout lasted more than three months and became the centre of an ongoing debate about salaries in the industry.
More than 200 union members, from editorial assistants to publicists, went on strike in November with wages, workplace diversity and union protection among the issues.
Under the new contract, annual starting pay will increase to more than $47.000 and rise to $50,000 by 2025.
Full-time employees in the union also will receive a $1,500 lump sum payment.
