Support Long Island Rail Workers this Saturday

June 19, 2014

On Saturday, June 21, the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) workers, who have been without a contract for four years, and their supporters will rally in Massapequa, N.Y., telling the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) to bargain fairly with them. The LIRR workers are members of the International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers (SMART). Their previous contract expired in 2010, and the MTA is demanding benefit cuts and other concessions and has rejected recommendations from federal mediators that would have ended the dispute.
