Rush hour begins in Times Square this evening as word that the strike was over spread through the city like wildfire.
Woooooohoooooo! Picture Snoopy doing a happy dance... that's me!
Mercifully, state mediators accomplished in 18hrs what Pataki, the MTA, and others were not able to accomplish in several weeks.
Transit workers are told to report to work immediately!
As I walked down the street doing my errands, I heard the news of the strike being passed from one ebullient pedestrian to another. I can't express how relieved and happy I am.
Of course, what this means is that the Union and the MTA will continue to negotiate and the Union and it's workers will find according to the Taylor Law.
