The article reports that New York State's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is seeking binding arbitration in an attempt to settle its contract dispute with union members whose three-day strike in December 2005 shut down mass transit service. A petition formally requesting binding arbitration was filed by MTA with the New York State Public Employment Relations Board to ensure timely resolutions of the dispute. The proposal of MTA includes work rule changes expanding the job responsibilities of some union members.
