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?
Maybe state law differs from federal. Possibly, there's a difference in their respective contracts.
i must say that state law differs from federal law to a great extent.
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.
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.......
NYC transit has civil service employees; the LIRR does not.
