Talks between the Municipal Transportation Agency and the Muni operators union had resumed after last week’s sickout, but they were broken off again Wednesday night by union representatives, MTA officials said Thursday.Transportation Director Ed Reiskin sent a letter to Transport Workers Union Local 250-A President Eric Williams urging the union to come back to the bargaining table and warning that if it does not reach an agreement through the process mandated by the City Charter, drivers will not get a raise.”We hope the union will reconsider its refusal to participate in the mediation-arbitration process and will instead move forward to achieve a timely contract that will reward the transit operators with wage increases and other important benefits of which they are deserving,” he wrote.Union officials could not be reached for comment Thursday evening.
