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.

CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago federal appeals court isn't letting Illinoisans immediately tote firearms in public under the state's fledging concealed-carry law, but says it will give the matter a speedy review.
The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last week turned down the emergency injunction request by gun-rights advocates who wanted Illinois gun owners to be able carry concealed weapons now instead of waiting months for the permitting process to be set up.
Mary Shepard and the Illinois State Rifle Association say the wait is unreasonable and unconstitutional.
The 7th Circuit will hear the case, but hasn't scheduled arguments.
The Illinois Legislature passed the last-in-the-nation concealed carry law July 9 against the governor's objections. Illinois State Police have 180 days to set up the process and another 90 days to process applications.
