Return of New York's Transit Workers Welcomed

December 23, 2005 - 11:39 a.m. CST

NEW YORK (AP) _ Not everyone is happy New York City's transit workers are back on the job.

Transport Workers Union vice president John Mooney says it's a ``disgrace'' the union's executive board voted to accept a deal that returned workers to their jobs without a new contract.

But commuters appreciate having the buses and subways operating.

One woman who took a subway to Penn Station today says she doesn't know how she would have made it if the subway hadn't been running.

A bus driver says he's happy to be back on the job, but wants to know what he's gained and what he'll have to give up.

The end of the strike also means a homeless man again has a warm place to sleep. He says ``now I have my apartment back.''
