The Met AGMA Negotiating Committee has committed to continue bargaining with the Met for another week, starting today. Last week we carried our progress forward. Friday was halting, slow, and difficult, but we will press on. This Committee is made up of limitless talent and resolute determination, and we will do everything we can to build a better Met.
