End to the Strike Nearing?

The Dow Jones Newswire is reporting that the transit union head has agreed to meet a mediator today.

The Newswire is also reporting that a NY judge has stated that jailing transit union heads is a distinct possibility.

It looks like this strike might be coming to a close. The parent union has said they wont help pay the fines and that employees should go back to work and now there’s a risk of jail time. I can’t see the union continuing this fight any further for employees that are not even working for them yet.

This strike could be the “Custard's Last Stand” of New York City union battles.
