Met claims $1 million saved in staff dealmain
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.
