Meadowlands Racetrack Running Out of Time

By Jerry Henry

Officials from Local 137, who represent workers at the Meadowlands Racetrack, voted to not even consider an offer that included a pay cut which could mean that after 35 years the jewel of harness racing in New Jersey may close.  Governor Christie announced a plan to privatize the Meadowlands in December.  New York Racetrack owner Jeff Gural was trying to negotiate to lease the track.  Gural said he was completely shocked that a union would vote to shut the track down.
