Long Island News & PR
The MTA has released a statement asking for more negotiations to take place before a potential LIRR strike.
New York, NY - July 16, 2014 - The MTA remains committed to resolving this dispute at the bargaining table. As Governor Cuomo said, a strike would disrupt families and business across the New York metropolitan region, and the only way to prevent a strike is for both sides to negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement at the bargaining table. We have asked the LIRR unions to resume negotiations immediately.
