NEWARK, N.J. — Healthcare insurance is the biggest hurdle to a new labor agreement between NJ TRANSIT and rail unions as the March 13 deadline when workers can strike or management can lock them out approaches, NJ Advance Media reports.

NJ Transit wants employees to pay more, up to 10% to 20% of the premium cost, depending on the plan, while the unions want to pay the same as their peers on Metro-North and the Long Island Rail Road, which is 2.6%.

A coalition of 11 NJ TRANSIT rail unions have worked since 2011 without a new contract. The two sides have been through negotiation, mediation and two Presidential Emergency Boards. For the full story, click here.
