Why is a strike of New York subway workers illegal under the State's Taylor Law, but a strike by the employees of the Long Island Railroad is legal under federal railroad laws?

@gollum,
Maybe state law differs from federal. Possibly, there's a difference in their respective contracts.

@bankruptcycenter,
bankruptcycenter-
Thank you. Long Island is totally within New York State. Why would LIRR workers and not New York subway workers come under federal law?

Yes, Fedral and state law has a striking difference. it is also important to mention they also have a difference in their respective contracts.

Thank you.

However, I do not follow on what basis the LIRR is subject to federal law. All of Long Island is in New York State.

I guess it should not be a subject to the Federal Law as i completely agree that all of the Long Island is in the New York State.......

@gollum,
NYC transit has civil service employees; the LIRR does not.
