NY Post Article: 'Burbs in Rail Trouble. Amtrak Strike Threatens NJ and LI

The New York Post article 'BURBS IN RAIL TROUBLE AMTRAK STRIKE THREATENS NJ & LI comments how an Amtrak strike would paralyze NY Penn Station. If the strike occurs, LIRR and NJ Transit service to NYC would nearly shut down as Amtrak owns the Penn Station tracks. So a strike by Amtrak unions would put out all commuters to NYC, not just those on Amtrak trains.

The article further notes that a Amtrak strike was "very likely". All NYC commuters need to plan contingencies for Jan 31. Possible contingencies: Chinatown bus? Work from home? Call in 'sick'? Any reader suggestions?
