Mayor Gavin Newsom also issued a statement saying, "I urge the involved parties to work more diligently towards a fair and reasonable settlement one that recognizes the economic concerns of the workers while at the same time respect[ing] the employers' need for operating flexibility within the wide range of facilities in which they provide security services."
