Long Islanders wary of strike as MTA and Union make no progress
MTA and Transport Workers Union officials have stopped negotiations Saturday as continued discussion yielded little progress.
One union official said the talks have broken off completely as each side stands firm in its demands. An MTA official, however, denied that claim, saying that the sides were in recess.
The union rejected Friday what the MTA called its final offer. If no agreement is reached, the union plans to partially strike beginning 12:01 a.m. Monday. That strike would include two private bus lines in Queens. A full strike is scheduled for 12:01 a.m. Tuesday.
