New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, center, sits between Tom Prendergast, Chairman and CEO of the Metropolitan Transit Authority, left, and John Samuelson, President of the Transit Workers Local 100, right, during a news conference announcing a tentative contract settlement between the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the Transit Workers Local 100, Thursday, April 17, 2014, in New York. Transit officials and the union representing an estimated 34,000 New York City subway and bus workers have reached a tentative contract deal that includes raises but also higher health insurance payments. Thursday's tentative pact came after Cuomo's office got involved Wednesday in negotiations. The last contract lapsed more than two years ago. (AP Photo/John Minchillo) less
