New Jersey Transit and 11 railroad unions continue to negotiate a contract deal to avert a strike that would strand tens of thousands of commuters and gridlock the New York metropolitan area.
Gary Dellaverson, New Jersey Transit’s negotiator, spoke to reporters in Newark, where talks resumed today after a daylong break for each side to review the latest proposals. He and union officials, representing 4,200 skilled laborers and supervisors, declined to detail the deals on the table.
“There is nothing valuable to report” to the public yet, Dellaverson said.
A strike is authorized to begin March 13 if no deal is reached.
