NEW YORK (AP) -- New York utility Consolidated Edison and the union representing its employees are scheduled to meet Thursday, potentially restarting stalled talks that have left workers off their jobs while managers are keeping the electrical power going.

Con Ed and Utility Workers Local 1-2 spokesman John Melia say the parties are meeting.

Melia said Monday the meeting is to see if negotiations can resume.

Talks broke down Sunday after the workers' contract expired at midnight.

With heat pressing down on New Yorkers, pressure has been mounting for the situation to be resolved. Both sides say there are many issues on which they have not reached agreement, including changing pension terms.
