The Metro workers union released a statement saying they are pleased with progress made by mediators.
The Local 788 is arguing that Metro should not be allowed to scrap the pension plan for current employees. Company officials were trying to transition the pension to a 401k for all employees, past, current, and future.
The mediators have also sided with the workers who are asking for a livable wage increase.
