N.Y.C. schools reopening as transit strike goes on
New York — Striking transit workers and employers met separately Sunday to map strategies for further contract talks as New York's commuter system, which carries some 5 million bus and rail riders every weekday, remained idle for a sixth day.
With schools reopening today (April 7) after spring vacation, thousands more commuters will be going into the city by foot, roller skates, boat, bicycle, and car.
New York Mayor Edward Koch said Sunday that the demands of striking transit workers were outrageous and unreasonable and the city will contribute no money to a settlement.
