Transit Strike

Many of the 7 million New Yorkers will be affected if the Transit Workers Union (TWU) and the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) do not reach an agreement during the current ongoing contract negotiations.

Subway entrance across from Grand Central Terminal - 8:30 pm

At 12:01 Friday morning TWU contract with MTA ran out. However, a strike was averted as the deadline was pushed to early next week. At the same time, a few privately operated bus routes in Queens by MTA and under TWU labor agreement will start a partial strike.

I will be on an 8 hours shift for the Bloomberg News (12 to 8 AM) on Sunday night to cover the negotiations just in case if there is a resolution.
