BLAH BLAH “STUPIDEST STRIKE EVER” BLAH BLAH

BLAH BLAH “STUPIDEST STRIKE EVER” BLAH BLAH

[A] day after details of an agreement between the transit workers and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority were spelled out, Roger Toussaint, the union’s president, seems to have emerged in a far better position than seemed likely just a few days ago.

Mr. Toussaint, whose back appeared to be against the wall last week, can boast of a tentative 37-month contract that meets most of his goals, including raises above the inflation rate and no concessions on pensions. Indeed, several fiscal and labor experts said yesterday that Mr. Toussaint and his union appeared to have bested the transit authority in their contract dispute.

Union wins.

    They also got fined $10,000 each, basically giving back their raises and whatever gains they saved from not contributing to their pensions (but agreeing to contribute to their health insurance).

    That’s not exactly a shutout. I still think they could have accomplished the same goals without striking, thereby saving themselves the $10,000 per worker fine.
