    NY Macy's Workers Continue Contract Talks

    Macy's and the union representing workers at its flagship Manhattan store and three other New York locations are continuing contract talks.     

    The union says negotiations continued past a midnight strike deadline, and both sides are still at the table Thursday morning in the hopes of reaching a tentative deal.     

    A Macy's spokesperson confirmed the talks were ongoing in an e-mail Thursday, but said there ws no deal yet to announce.

    On Monday, more than 4,000 workers with Local 1-S of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union had voted to strike if a new contract was not reached by 11:59 p.m. Wednesday.     

    The other stores are in the Bronx, Queens and Westchester County.     

    The union has said Macy's is financially sound but wants to reduce paid time off, eliminate pension benefits for new employees and raise the cost of health care.
