Officials in Metro-North’s largest union may seek to authorize a strike to protest contract disputes — a move that could affect 300,000 train commuters each day.

James Fahey, executive director of the Association of Commuter Rail Employees, and the union’s executive board have agreed to ask its members to authorize a strike that would affect commuters across Fairfield County and the Hudson Valley on all lines of Metro-North, according to lohud.com.

The union represents nearly 2,500 Metro-North engineers and conductors. A strike would affect approximately 300,000 daily. There is no timeline for any possible strike.
