NEW YORK, N.Y. — If you’re headed for here, you’ll still be able to get into town without facing more gridlock than usual – at least for today — as transit workers remained on the job this morning.
Local 100 of the Transport Workers Union postponed a 12:01 a.m. strike deadline and kept talking with the Metropolitan Transportation Agency, but the union did not say how long past the deadline it would keep talking before calling a strike.
Shortly after midnight, a union spokesperson said the strike had been postponed because talks had seen progress in “noneconomic areas of dignity and respect for our members,” according to local media reports.
Commuters were able to get to work as usual this morning, however. And the MTA did not switch to its contingency plan that includes restricting private vehicles carrying less than four people from downtown Manhattan.
