Report: LIRR “rolls closer to a possible strike” | TWU Local 100

Posted: July 21, 2014 in Uncategorized

the New York Daily News today reports on the MTA’s rejection, in Washington, of a proposed wage package for Long Island Railroad employees who have been working without a contract since 2010. The wage package, an average of 2.85% a year for six years, was recommended by an emergency board panel reporting to President Barack Obama. That recommendation is explained by President Samuelsen in his latest video, posted in the top position on the TWU Local 100 website. The MTA’s rejection of the wage package recommendation, the News reports, sets up the MTA for a possible strike come summer — which would be legal. LIRR employees are not subject to the NYS Taylor Law.
