The Knives Begin to Sharpen

New York Post

The whiniest labor leader in recent memory, Roger Toussaint of the Transport Workers Union, this week quit blaming others for the rank-and-file's rejection of the deal he negotiated with the MTA long enough to reject a binding-arbitration settlement to the current contract crisis.

The MTA on Wednesday filed papers with the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) - the first step in pushing the dispute to binding arbitration.

Said Toussaint: "We're saying that we want a negotiated settlement, not one imposed through arbitration."

Really, Roger?

Who cares?

Given the TWU's blatant bad faith up to this point - first, an illegal strike the week before Christmas; then, the rejection of the negotiated settlement - binding arbitration is the way to go.

Or the TWU can accept the latest offer from the MTA.
