MassDOT’s Tinlin Is “Proud” of Effort to Assist Toll Collectors Displaced by AET

New England Public Radio  reports, “With all-electronic tolling scheduled to begin on the Massachusetts Turnpike next month, more than 400 toll-collectors are in their final weeks on the job. And [MassDOT Highway Administrator Thomas J. Tinlin] says he’s proud of the work the state has done to lessen the blow to these workers.” The report adds that, “The state has said about 85 toll collectors will be given other jobs, while another 200 are retiring. More than 100 others were hired after a deal was struck between their union and the state. They will be out of a job at the end of October.”
