N.Y. Times Drivers' Union Votes to Grant Concessions: New York Times truck drivers voted to end their three-week labor dispute, ratifying contracts that guarantee jobs in exchange for concessions to the paper and wholesale newspaper distributors. The vote ended a sometimes violent dispute that had hampered newspaper deliveries. Although the contracts will directly affect about 1,100 drivers, the voting was open to all of the union's 2,900 members.

Averting a crippling New York City transit strike, negotiators agreed Monday on a spartan, three-year deal in which union leaders accepted a much smaller wage increase than they had demanded. Under the settlement, subway and bus employees would get a $1,000 lump-sum bonus, but no wage increase, in the first year, and a 3% salary increase in each of the following two years. The deal must still be approved by the 34,000 members of the Transit Workers Union.

Hundreds of fast food workers around the country are walking off their jobs Monday to raise support for $15-an-hour pay. Advocacy groups such as Fast Food Forward organized strikes in New York City, Chicago, St. Louis, Detroit, Milwaukee, Kansas City, Mo., and Flint, Mich., to protest the $7.25 federal minimum wage. Demonstrators, coming from jobs in mega-chains such as McDonald's and KFC, are also seeking the right to form unions without retaliation. Strikes from industry workers have intensified in recent months.
