The Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced a labor deal with the union representing workers for New York's subway system. The deal could have an impact on a looming strike on the Long Island Rail Road this summer.

The board of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority voted on Tuesday to offer commuters on Metro North’s New Haven line a refund to compensate for service difficulties since a power outage on the line last week.

MTA Chairman Tom Prendergast told board members that he considers the current power failure a one-off event, in terms of its magnitude and duration.
