TWU to MTA: FU!
Just as I predicted last month, when news of the transit deal first surfaced, the struggle between the MTA and its transit workers is far from over.
[The MTA] intends to seek binding arbitration to resolve the dispute; Ed Watt, the secretary-treasurer of the union, said the union would oppose it.I live in NYC and my bus driver told me that 99% of the time, the arbitrator rules in favor of the MTA. That explains the MTA's insistence on arbitration and the union's resistance to it.
Wakeup New Yorkers! If you don't open yours eyes and understand what's really going on in this picture, you will find yourselves next in line.
