The news media needs to learn how to count. The strike went from ~2AM Monday morning to Midnight Thursday night/ Friday morning. That's 4 days, not 4 & 1/2 days. Other news outlets report it as 5 days. The trains were stopped for 4 & 1/2 days but the extra half day was the time needed for the workers to get the systems up and running again.
The strike was only 4 days, workers returned to work starting midnight Thursday night/Friday morning.
