SUPERIOR, Mont. (AP) - Striking employees of the Mineral County sheriff’s department have returned to work now that a mediation session is scheduled.

Teamsters Local 2 spokesman Shawn Fontaine tells KGVO-AM (http://bit.ly/1ZBVh4F ) that the deputies, dispatchers and detention officers went back to work Thursday morning. The mediation session is scheduled for June 15.

The 16 employees went on strike on May 30 seeking a larger raise and more than a one-year contract. They had been working without a contract since July 2015.

Fontaine says if the mediation doesn’t work, the strike may resume, but deputies will be on patrol until then.
