WOODBURY - Several reports have surfaced this morning that 1,000 Long Island Bus workers may be out of a job soon.

The reports say the MTA has notified the state labor department that the workers could be laid off on New Year's Day.

The move is a precautionary step in case Nassau County fails to privatize the bus line which is now run by the MTA.

However, talks to privatize the bus company continue.
