“It’s actually Congress that can end a strike and impose a settlement one way or the other,” he said. “So right now it seems that Congress is pivotal to what happens here, and from what I read in the newspapers it’s going to depend on what Congress intends to do….”
Cuomo added that “Congress can order a settlement, Congress can order mediation, Congress can order arbitration, Congress can do almost whatever they want, because they are in control of the resolution of the strike.”
Here was Cuomo today:
Cuomo thanks NY members of Congress "for making it abundantly clear" Congress won't avert LIRR strike, as per "false belief" by unions.

False belief put forward by the unions that Congress could help avert the LIRR strike?
The guy who put forward the false belief that Congress could help avert the LIRR strike was Sheriff Andy Cuomo himself.
Stop blaming the unions, Sheriff Andy.
You were the guy who pushed that meme.
