December 19, 1983 - The Greyhound bus strike ended when members of the Amalgamated Transit Union ratified a new contract containing deep cuts in wages and benefits. The company claimed the concessions were needed to stay in business and compete with other transportation providers, such as airlines and rail. The Greyhound contract was one of many concessionary deals forced on working people during the 1980s.
