    Just heard it on cnn. Both parties willing to talk. Workers to return to work by the end of the day! Im sure the bus and subway drivers are going to get alot of evil stares as people board the busses and trains.

    It was "take steps to return to work..." Don't get me wrong I hope I dont have another commute from hell tonight, but I'm not counting my subways before they're running..

    EDIT: Now I hear that they're going to return to work while they negotiate? Fingers crossed...

    The mediator said "we hope to have the workers back at work within hours if not by the end of the day".

    If it was Bush then I would notch that as the first thing he has done positive for the people of NY.

    Well if it went on, I bet he would order them back. Too vital to the functioning of the country in my opinion.

    Glad you guys will get back to normal for Christmas.

    Well, it appears that the mediators have worked out a semi-deal that will allow the transit workers to return to work, at which point final negotiations will commence. However it won't happen in time for the commute home tonight :mad:

    Nothing quite like a return to muggery and thuggery. If trains are running Friday, I plan to celebrate by taking another day off. Based on prior experience, you can usually walk to work faster than the trains the first day they are placed back in service.
