New York City Transit Strike

3.5 million New Yorkers Stranded by Transport Strike

 

This Message from The MTA Web Site

Current as of 12/20/2005 09:42 AM

As of 3 a.m. on Tuesday, December 20, 2005, the Transport Workers Union (TWU) called an illegal strike on MTA NYCT buses & subways throughout all five boroughs as well as on most MTA Bus Company routes (click on MTA Bus Company below for routes that are running). This is in addition to a strike action called at 12:01 Monday, December 19, 2005 by the TWU against two private bus lines in Queens: Triboro Coach & Jamaica Buses.

As a result of this illegal action against the MTA, travel options for MTA subway and bus customers will be limited as noted in the links below.

However, customers are reminded that it will take 24 hours from the outset of the strike action for MTA commuter railroad contingency services as outlined on this site to be in place. That will be in time for the Wednesday morning rush. (This amount of time is needed to reposition and reconfigure train equipment to provide special service as noted on the links below.)

Check this site regularly for the most up-to-date information about the implementation of these plans, check www.nyc.gov, or keep abreast through TV, radio, and newspaper updates.

 

From the Transport Workers Union  (TWU) Website

New York Supreme Court Enjoins TWU
New York State Supreme Court Justice Theodore T. Jones has issued two preliminary injunctions against the International Union and Local 100 to prevent the union from "conducting, engaging or participating in, through any manner of any means a strike, work stoppage, sick-out, slowdown, or any other concerted activity with the intent of interrupting the normal and regular operations of the New Your City Transit Authority and the Manhattan and Bronx Surface Operating Authority."
