Mayor Edward Rendell imposed new contract terms on the city's 15,000 non-uniformed municipal workers Wednesday after they refused to accept concessions. He also ordered city supervisors to prepare for a strike. Union leaders indicated that they were exploring options other than a walkout, and members were told to report to work today. But the mayor's decision was met with chants of "strike, strike" at union headquarters.
