A labor dispute could soon halt service on the Long Island Rail Road.

Members of the LIRR's largest union have unanimously voted in favor of a strike if a contract agreement is not reached.

A walkout could come on March 21.

Union members are pushing for raises while the Metropolitan Transportation Authority wants a three year wage freeze.

Long Island Rail Road unions have been working without a contract since 2010.
