SASKATOON - Both sides in Saskatoon's 11-day-old transit lockout say they have scheduled a meeting.

Mark Rogstad, media spokesman for the city, says they will meet today with representatives of the Amalgmated Transit Union.

That was confirmed by a tweet from the union on Tuesday evening.

The city locked out 300 city bus drivers and support staff on Sept. 20.

The union wants a 22.25 per cent wage increase over five years to bring its members up to average levels for other transit workers in Western Canada.

The city has offered 10 per cent over four years.

Changes to the pension plan are also a key issue.
