THE BRONX - Hundreds of transit agents turned in badges today despite a judge?s order to stop layoffs.
More than 500 workers were slated to be laid off last week. However, a court-ordered injunction temporarily stalled the layoffs.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says it can lay off 250 station agents, keep station booths manned at all times and still obey the injunction.
A full hearing on the planned layoffs is scheduled for Wednesday.
