It may be too early to call, but a post on NBC's website this afternoon says "signficant progress" has been made in talks to avert a doorman strike at midnight tonight.
Health and pension benefits conflicts are 'nearly resolved," while wage issues are still being negotiated.

BRICKUNDERGROUND STRIKE UPDATE 11:01 PM: A managing agent with a contact on the negotiating committee says a new agreement will probably be reached by 12:01 a.m.
