Transport Workers Union bus drivers in New York City go on strike over wages, hours, working conditions, and benefits.  The strike halted most of Manhattan’s bus service for twelve days before it was settled in the workers’ favor.  [Photo: Hundreds of uniformed TWU strikers march together in the St. Patrick’s Day parade, despite having been banned from participating in the parade as a group.]
