After 15 hours of mediation, the St. Louis County Public Works Union and the county have reached an agreement on a new contract.

Teamsters Local 320 Recording Secretary Erik Skoog posted on his Facebook page just before 3:45 Monday morning that an agreement that "both parties can be proud of" had been reached.

Republican Rep. Pete Stauber was seen on the picket lines with the Teamsters on Friday as they held up signs saying, "On Strike" and "Stay Away." 

The Teamsters also have the support of Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar. In a tweet, she said she stands in solidarity with the Teamsters, adding they work hard and deserve what they've earned.

St. Louis County Communications Manager Dana Kazel says the county supervisors plowing in place of the Teamsters had 70 percent of the roads plowed by the time they finished on Saturday.
