Union Prepares to Fete Ex-Toll Takers as More Accept Retirement Incentive

Boston Herald reports on a “slight bump” (from 147 to 158) in the number of former MassDOT toll collectors who have accepted an “enhanced pension perks” offer. (About 200 are eligible.) The newspaper adds that Teamsters Local 127 is preparing a Friday, November 11, party for “past and ‘present’ toll takers — including those among the 477 full- and part-timers who worked the booths for the final time last month.”
