MTA seeks preliminary injunction to prevent workers from striking
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) was back in Supreme Court Tuesday, seeking a preliminary injunction to prevent transit workers from striking.
Under New York State law it could be illegal for transit workers to strike, however, union officials made it clear its members will strike if a contract agreement is not reached by the December 15 deadline. If a judge issues a court injunction and workers still strike, the fines would be doubled for those striking.
Meanwhile, the MTA made a new offer to the Transit Workers Union Monday night. They have been at the bargaining table for several weeks. Some union officials say the recent offers by the MTA are not good enough.
