City comes up with plan in case MTA transit workers strike
The city has come up with a plan for Bronx straphangers in case MTA transit workers decide to strike.
Transit workers have yet to reach a new contract agreement with the MTA. According to the Daily News, the top transit workers union leader is refusing to rule out an illegal walkout if an agreement is not reached by the December 15 deadline. The main sticking points in the negotiations remain health care costs and taking conductors off subway lines.
If workers do strike, the city would ban all cars without passengers from entering Manhattan. The city would also create carpool staging areas in the Shea and Yankee stadium parking lots.
