Transit Strike

New Yorkers Walk To Work During Strike
By  | 

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says "no one is being spared" in New York's transit strike.

He says the subway and bus shutdown hurts working people the hardest. Bloomberg says union officials who say they're fighting for workers are "frauds."

Bloomberg says the strike "needs to end and it needs to end now." He says it's disrupting the city's entire economy, from Broadway shows to retail stores, delis and museums.

State Supreme Court Justice Theodore Jones says there's a "distinct possibility" he'll send union leaders to jail. He's told lawyers from the Transport Workers Union to bring the organization's president and other officials to court to answer a criminal contempt charge.

The union lawyers say leaders are in talks with mediators and hauling them into court could halt the negotiations.
