Focuses on the issue of collective-bargaining agreements between the unions and the subway companies. Intention of the Fiorello H. LaGuardia, Mayor of New York City, not to renew the agreements; Making of eleventh-hour civil-service concessions to the subway workers which are clearly intended to cut the ground from under the unions; Criticism of Transport Worker's Union (TWU) for handling the situation in an inept manner; Contention that bus strike organized by TWU was not for its own sake but as a show of strength in preparation for the larger struggle to come; Contention that the denial of LaGuardia to negotiate with TWU leaders amounts to denying the right of the trade union to exist among government employees.
