How are the talks going?

This brief item in today's Miami Herald is all we can find:


Students, labor officials and representatives of contract company Unicco Services will continue to meet Tuesday, following a meeting Friday convened by the University of Miami over the ongoing labor dispute with the school's contract cleaning staff.

This is the first time the parties have sat down together to discuss the dispute. The meeting was a result of a settlement between the school and almost 20 students who held a 14-hour sit-in over the workers on Tuesday.

UM has already raised wages and offered healthcare coverage to Unicco workers, who are in the fourth week of a strike over unfair labor practices.
