NEW YORK (AP) -

1220dvs-strike Commuters trudged through the freezing cold, rode bicycles and shared cabs Tuesday as New York's bus and subway workers went on strike for the first time in more than 25 years and stranded millions of riders at the height of the Christmas rush. A judge slapped the union with a $1 million-a-day fine.

The sanction was levied against the Transport Workers Union for violating a state law that bars public employees from going on strike. The city and state had asked that the union be hit with a "very potent fine."

$1M a day for each day that the buses and subways are down. That is a very hefty fine. Of course the union is appealing it sayin that it is too excessive. The article says that the srtike is over wages and pensions, which isn't all that surprising. They just may settle in the next few days. I think this because 1) it's New York City and 2) it's New York City 5 days away from Christmas. So we all know it's busy.
