Arbitration Mach Frei

It looks like we will see the entire TWU mess thrown into arbitration. At least, as the Times is reporting today, this is what the mediator in the dispute is suggesting and the MTA agrees. What this does to Toussaint's call for a re-vote is anyone's guess.

If the arbitration does go forward, however, it would not be a good thing for Jolly Roger. Almost everyone believes that the results of an arbitration would be worse than the contract that the members of Local 100 turned down in January.
