NEWARK, N.J. — Although NJ TRANSIT has offered its unionized rail workers a 10% pay increase over 7.5 years, a big increase in employees’ health insurance costs could translate into a pay cut for about 1,400 workers – a development which could continue to delay a labor agreement, reported The Record.

The agency’s latest offer was made to an emergency board that was appointed by President Obama to avoid a transit strike. NJ Transit’s rail employees have worked more than four years without a new contract. A strike could start as early as July 16, 2016. For the full story, click here.
