Metro-North workers in Croton show support for striking colleagues

Commuters coming to the Croton Harmon Train Station Thursday were greeted by Metro-North workers with signs showing their support for the striking Transport Workers Union (TWU).

While the rail workers don?t plan on striking, they were out in force to show the MTA that they feel the same way as the TWU. The Metro-North workers have been without their own contract for three years and want negotiations settled. Other unions joined in the support as well. A member of an electrician?s union said he believes the MTA is trying to break the union and its important that they all stick together.

Some progress has been made, however, as a state mediator has both sides talking again and the transit union is expected to vote to go back to work while negotiations resume.
