TOLL COLLECTORS AGREE TO JOB SAVING PROPOSAL

70px-New_Jersey_Turnpike_Shield_svgToll collectors may not see their jobs privatized after all. The Star-Ledger reports an agreement was reached between the Turnpike Authority and union leaders to have the employees take about a 25 percent decrease in pay, in order to save their jobs for two years. There will be a 2 p.m. vote by the Board of Directors on whether the agreement will be ratified. The move puts the state’s toll collectors in the mid-range of toll collectors in the region.
