Deal Reached To Save Half A Billion On New Tappan Zee Bridge
WCBS 880’s Paul Murnane On The Story
The agreement with 14 labor organizations will save $452 million, according to Cuomo’s office.
Work scheduling flexibility that could allow for a ten-hour day and four-day work week would, alone, save $122 million.
There’s also a no strike pledge.
The Project Labor Agreement, as it’s known, was reportedly held up on a state push to allow steel work off site, which one union feared would cost its workers some $40 million.
It’s not clear how that has been worked out, but the Governor’s office called the deal a critical step forward for this $6 billion project.
