Turnpike Authority Considering Privatizing Toll Collection Jobs

By Briana Vannozzi

 Under the Turnpike Authority’s request for proposals (RFP) to privatize toll collection jobs, employees who remain would face significant pay cuts.  The RFP is seeking a private company to run the manual toll lanes, and calls for a minimum starting wage of 12 dollars an hour for full-time and 10 dollars an hour for part-time workers.  Union and labor leaders spoke out against the plan.
