New Deal for Turnpike Toll Managers, Supervisors
Toll supervisors and managers on the New Jersey Turnpike have agreed to a four-year contract that strips them of some benefits but provides job protection.
The Record reports the Turnpike Authority voted Tuesday to accept the deal with the International Federation of Professional & Technical Engineers Local 200/200A. It represents about 260 supervisors and managers.
Under the deal, the union members will no longer receive bonus pay for working during certain snow storms or during states of emergency. They also will no longer be reimbursed for commuting expenses.
In return, the authority won't seek to outsource their jobs to a private firm.
The union members got a zero percent pay increase in the deal's first two years.
The contract will be in effect through October 2015.
