Strike Blogging: HiHo-HiHo It's Off To Jail You Go

State Supreme Court Justice Theodore Jones instructed TWU lawyers to bring Roger Toussaint and other Union officials to the court on Thursday to answer to charges of criminal contempt. Jones stated that jail time is a "distinct possibility".

Jones also issued fines of $50,000 and $75,000 a day for chapters of Amalgamated Transit Workers Union, which represents 3,000 MTA workers.

Fine-o-meter
TWU - $2,000,000
Striking Members - 4 days pay

ATWU - $125,000

Go vote in the AM NY poll asking if the TWU was right to strike.
