    Default Cuomo Gets Deal With Unions to Save $452 Million on Tappan Zee

    The project labor agreement between the New York Thruway Authority and 14 unions guarantees no strikes, and allows for a four-day workweek and 10-hour days on one of the biggest public infrastructure projects in the U.S., Cuomo said today in a statement.

    “This agreement will save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, while putting in place important protections for our workers,” Cuomo said. “For too long we have talked about replacing the Tappan Zee, and we cannot wait any longer.”

    The authority is considering a 45 percent toll increase for trucks to help pay for a $1.5 billion highway-improvement program and refinance debt, not a new Tappan Zee.

    $50.00 toll east bound?

    It's close to that already..I can just see it now as YRC cries that they can't give back the 15% as they now have to pay higher tolls..

    They will start negotiating from where they are.. you will never see that 15% back unless it is over the course of many many years but not in our lifetime..

    The nons making more than YRC? I don't think so. It'll be sink or swim time for YRC but I wouldn't be too sure about the pension
