NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Workers and management at the nation’s largest wholesale produce market in New York, Hunts Point Market, say they’ve reached a tentative agreement on a contract that averts a threatened walkout.
Teamsters Local 202 says its 1,300 members, who carry the final say, will vote on the offer Wednesday.
According to the union, the market’s merchants raised their original wage offer.
“Our members stood strong and the market knew we were serious,” Daniel Kane Jr., president of Teamsters Local 202, said in a statement. “We said we deserved a fair wage, we fought for it and we got it.”
