Herbert L. Haber, 89, Dies; Labor Negotiator in a Strike-Torn Era

The atmosphere of unrest had been set months before Mr. Haber arrived, when 33,000 members of the Transit Workers Union began a 12-day strike to greet Mr. Lindsay’s inauguration as mayor on Jan. 1, 1966.

Mr. Haber, appointed that July, entered a fray that was bigger than anything he or Mayor Lindsay could fully control, said David P. Lipsky, the Estabrook Professor of Dispute Resolution at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations.
