[MLS SPOTLIGHT] Scot L. Beckenbaugh, the acting director of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, issued a statement, commending representatives of the Professional Referee Organization (PRO) and Professional Soccer Referees Association (PSRA) "for their cooperation and progress" in collective bargaining negotiations being conducted under FMCS auspices.  
 
According to the statement, Beckenbaugh and Jack Sweeney, FMCS Director of Mediation Services for the Northeast Sub-Region, conducted several lengthy PRO-PRSA mediation sessions.
