"With this successful outcome, I also want to commend the work of the FMCS mediators who assisted the parties in reaching their agreement— Commissioners Ralph Quattrocchi and William Domini. I understand that the skills, expertise, resourcefulness and hard work by our mediators were essential ingredients in helping these parties resolve the complex issues that divided them. This announcement is certainly a tribute to them and to their outstanding efforts. "
