Newark, NJ – The National Conference of Firemen & Oilers, SEIU 32BJ (NCFO), announced today that a Tentative Agreement with New Jersey Transit (NJT), has been reached.
On December 1, 2019, pursuant to Section 6 of the Railway Labor Act (RLA), the NCFO served formal notices for changes in current rates of pay, rules and working conditions.
“This agreement provides solid wage increases during a National Emergency Pandemic for the NCFO members and all New jersey Transit employees, who have continued to provide professional service for NJT during this crisis.”NCFO President Dean Devita
“Because of the pandemic, never in the history of NJT have the NCFO members needed a wage increase more and this increase is well deserved. The NCFO members must be treated with dignity and respect for their action during this National Emergency.”NCFO Assistant to the President Michael Pistone
We look forward to presenting the Tentative Agreement to the NCFO membership for their consideration.
The Ratification process will take place in the very near future.
The NCFO is an affiliate of 32BJ SEIU, the Service Employees International Union, which has 2.1 million members dedicated to raising industry standards, making life better for working families and our communities, and building a fair economy.
