Is the TWU/Transit Union the biggest problem for the MTA?

So what do you guys think? Looks like the State of New York will bail out the MTA. However the issue of union jobs in which most transit empployees get full health benefits when they retire and uptp to 50% of full pay after 20 years is costing the state of New York and the MTA at least $1 Billion a year.

I ask this topic question because the bailout only helps the MTA until the end of 2010 fiscal year.

Again do we really need in era of high speed computers need station agents 24/7 at all 400-plus subway stations in NY?

Or the TWU getting better pay than say entry level public school teachers around the country.



In this deep reccesion should NYCTA workers get better retirement benefits than US troops returning from War in Iraq or even their brothers/sisters at the NYPD? Feel free to reply. Thanks
