#Peace

We are not in a good place. We should be closer now. There should be more progress. And I can't stand here and say that I am comfortable with the negotiations as they stand at this instant.

We are comfortable with the terms of the tentative agreement. And the reason that we're comfortable is not only does it not reward the employees for going on strike -- no matter how you spin it, none of the penalties are waived, mitigated, ameliorated or a blind eye cast to them -- the contract is cheaper and better for the MTA than what was on the table at the time the strike commenced.
