A woman waits for a train at the Jamaica station of the Long Island Railroad station platform in the Queens borough of New York July 17, 2014. A threatened strike on New York's Long Island Rail Road has been averted after a tentative contract agreement was reached on Thursday, one of the labor unions involved in the negotiations said on its website. The state-controlled Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the coalition of eight unions representing about 5,400 rail workers have been involved in fraught negotiations to replace a workers' contract that expired in 2010.
