Some TWU members believe they were falsely led on a strike

New York City?s buses and subways began running Friday morning after a three-day transit strike, however, some Transport Work Union (TWU) members now believe they were falsely led on the strike.

The TWU strike brought the city?s transportation to a grinding halt Tuesday. But some union members feel the TWU president led them on an unnecessary strike that inconvenienced millions of New Yorkers. One worker says he doesn?t think there were enough outstanding issues in the contract to walk out.

The TWU local executive board eventually voted to end the strike after a mediator stepped in Thursday. The transit workers who went on strike now face stiff fines for the walk out.
