IBEW Local 589, the hardworking high voltage linemen at the Long Island Railroad just launched their new e-newsletter with UCOMM this past week titled, The 589 Express. The Presidential Emergency Board just ruled that the current deal on the table is reasonable and has advised the LIRR to settle the contract, but the railroad has no respect for anybody, including it's workforce, and is working its hardest to force a strike in late July that will keep 285,000 commuters stranded. It's really disgusting what is happening at the LIRR and LaGrange addresses the issue in his  LIBN column next week.
