The Transit Strike Fallout
The transit strike that occurred in December crippled the city, ruined the holiday season for some businesses, and cost quite a bit of money for the city. Still, I believe that Roger Toussaint made a horrible calculation. Of course the MTA was not negotiating in good faith, but what did he expect? And, why did Toussaint fail to understand that he would lose the battle and the public? How, exactly did he expect to move a lame duck administration through a strike action? I believe that the TWU had a right to be have some action, but, as I stare out of my window this morning, I pose this question -- how many more people would have been supportive of the strike action if it had been delayed until April 16th?
