The way is clear for financier Jim Tyree and his investment group to take over the Sun-Times Media Group. In meetings Wednesday afternoon and evening, four units of the Chicago Newspaper Guild voted to accept Tyree’s revised terms. The vote was 89 to 29 in favor at the Sun-Times unit, 28 to 8 at the Pioneer Press unit, 11 to 5 at the Lake County News-Sun unit, and 12 to 4 at the Joliet Herald News unit. All four units had rejected Tyree’s original terms by lopsided margins.
