Met claims $1 million saved in staff deal

The Met has reached agreement with the 32BJ SEIU union representing security guards, office staff and other auxiliaries.

The Met had sought a five-year wage freeze, with reduced pensions and health plans. The new deal increases wages by 5.5 percent over five years.

A Met spokesman said it would save the company 3 percent, or $1m, over its previous deal.

This is still small beer. The deals to watch are the musicians, the chorus and the stagehands.
