Strike Blogging: Strike May End

(1010 WINS) (NEW YORK) BREAKING: A state mediator says the striking union and the transit authority have agreed to resume negotiations while transit workers take steps to return to work

No timetable was announced for the restoration of service.

More at 1010 WINS.

The TWU members may be heading back to work but our work has just begun. The strikers need to be held accountable for their actions to prevent another union from making another mess next time there are negotiations. I will hold Bloomberg responsible for making sure the TWU is fined and fined again.

Fine-o-meter
TWU - $3,000,000
Striking Members - 6 days pay
ATWU - $250,000
