Contract talks between MTA and TWU could go down to the wire

Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) leaders acknowledged Wednesday that there is still a wide gap between them and the Transport Workers Union (TWU). Negotiations between the two sides have been going on for weeks. Transit workers want 8 percent annual raises over three years. They also want a share of the MTA's unexpected $1 billion surplus this year. The TWU has threatened to strike if an agreement isn?t reached by the December 15 deadline.
