Negotiations between the MTA and its largest union, the Transport Workers Union Local 100, continued beyond last night's midnight deadline at the Sheraton Hotel in midtown, as the city pushes to cut costs by granting no raises, while also decreasing vacation days and overtime pay. "I'm going to go back into that hotel and I'm going to tell the chairman of the MTA, I'm going to tell the governor to take their petty demands and shove it," said TWU President John Samuelson last night. "This railroad and bus system management, they still think they're in the 1880s." Both groups have so far agreed to extend the deadline so as to avoid a transportation strike, at which point more New Yorkers would be forced to care about a labor dispute.
