NYC TWU Strike Ends; Talks Continue

As I predicted yesterday, the strike is over today (ok, I had said early tomorrow):

Striking subway and bus workers in New York City ended a three-day walkout today.

Transport Workers Union Local 100 leaders agreed to call off the strike while negotiations on a contract resume, said Richard Curreri, a state mediator. The union’s board voted 36-5 with two abstentions this afternoon to accept the return-to- work plan, board member Eladio Diaz said.

Between 10 and 18 hours will be needed to get the city’s subways and buses running normally again, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said on its Web site. Mayor Michael Bloomberg said some buses will be back on the streets tonight and “hopefully most subways” will be open by the morning.
