Their fight is our fight
Brothers and Sisters, Breaking news just-in; a strike has been averted and a tentative agreement has been reached between the MTA and the unions on the LIRR property. The MTA decided to negotiate in the press - a classless and unprofessional move on their part.
Today's labor negotiations are difficult enough without introducing these underhanded tactics. Next February our utility contract with National Grid expires. Local 1049 will do our part to assure local media and newspapers don't sway our neighbors with their negative opinion's about unions. That is why no matter what happens, we are in full support of the LIRR Unions.
