Transit talks resume, but no agreement in labor dispute

The Transit Workers Union and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority returned to the bargaining table Saturday to negotiate a contract and to avoid a strike.

Both sides say there was no progress and the talks ended in less than four hours. There was no indication when bargaining might resume.

After failing to reach an agreement with the MTA Friday, the union called a partial strike against two private bus lines that are in the process of being taken over by the MTA. If a deal cannot be reached by 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, the strike will be extended to subways. Related Article Transit Strike Information for BX
