Three Wise Men

State-appointed mediators Richard Curreri, Martin Scheinman, and Alan Viani met separately with Transport Workers Union Local 100 and the MTA this morning, releasing a statement minutes before union leaders were scheduled to appear in court facing contempt charges.

Both sides have agreed to continue contract negotiations under a media blackout, and Local 100 president Roger Toussaint has agreed to forward to the TWU executive board—meeting at 1PM today—the mediators' recommendation that workers return.
