strike over

how exciting! it looks like the workers may have won! of course none of the articles i read yesterday announcing the end of the strike, from the times to cnn and the guardian, mentioned that the MTA had retreated on its pension demands, which had been the last minute surprise deal breaker that had forced the strike. all of the articles i read talked about the stiff fines and fear of legal repercussions, implying that that was why the workers went back to work. but the real reason, being reported today, when fewer people will read beyond the headline, is because they got what they were demanding.
