MTA and Transit Workers Reach Tentative Deal

The MTA and the Transport Workers Union have reached an agreement that will avert a possible strike.

"I am happy to report that we have reached a negotiated settlement with the MTA that I believe the Local 100 membership will ratify in overwhelming fashion,” TWU Local 100 President Tony Utano said in a statement.

The framework for a deal was reached over the weekend after “several days of intense bargaining.”The deal could be ratified as soon as Thursday.
