So the Transit Workers Union strike in NYC is over, but what happened? I’m hearing some folks call it a victory and others a failure, but they haven’t released any details of the union-management deal, so no one can really say. Actually, it sounds as though the union and management are still negotiating and therefore there are no deals to report. But when a union is on strike, one of their only bargaining chips is coming back to work, and the TWU has given that one up (although I suppose they can always call up the “now we’re going back on strike” chip, it would just be harder to re-start the strike after ending it once). So I don’t know how this is gonna turn out.
