There's no word yet on how talks went between the University of Minnesota and its striking clerical, technical and health-care workers.

But two union Web sites say all picketing is suspended, and a rally planned for ten this morning also is canceled.

The university said in an e-mail this morning that they decline to comment on the strike negotiations.

Strikers are asked to come to a noon meeting at strike headquarters for an update on what happened during Thursday's mediation.

The union workers -- represented by AFSCME -- have been on strike since Sept. 5.
Money is the biggest issue in the strike.

Fingers crossed - bonzo
