NATION IN BRIEF : TEXAS : Greyhound Claims Victory in Strike
Greyhound Lines Chairman Fred Currey declared victory in the two-month-old bus drivers’ strike. But the union said the bitter walkout was by no means over. The statement at company headquarters in Dallas came two days after the firm proposed a four-year wage freeze and the elimination of 4,500 union jobs, a proposal the union called an “insult.” The union insisted the strike was far from over, noting the company’s recently announced $56-million quarterly loss. Currey said buses are serving the cities that brought in 98% of its revenue last year.
