TWU Members Approve Contract

NEW YORK -- The Transport Workers Union ratified their contract by 71 percent.
Leaders of the TWU Local 100 made the announcement outside their headquarters Tuesday afternoon.

So the Union voted to approve a contract that they rejected in the first place after they went on strike? But...this vote does not matter because the issue has already been sent into binding arbitration with a state labor board in March. In the meantime, Toussaint has been sentenced to jail time and the Union has been bankrupted.

Uhhh... ah, hell I give up.
