New York Reps. Statement on LIRR Stalemate


Location: Washington, DC

Today, Reps. Tim Bishop, Steve Israel, Carolyn McCarthy, Grace Meng, Joseph Crowley and Peter King released the following statement regarding the current LIRR labor situation:

"We are pleased that representatives from labor and management spent nearly five hours negotiating on Thursday in an effort to ensure the continued operations of the Long Island Rail Road. We remain optimistic that an agreement can be reached without any disruption of rail service, however, we are troubled that no further negotiations are currently scheduled. We strongly urge both parties to work through the weekend to reach a deal to benefit the diverse ridership of the Long Island Rail Road."
