Toll collectors struck the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission today, at the peak of the Thanksgiving travel season.
Some 2,000 union employees - including toll collectors and maintenance workers represented by Teamsters Locals 77 and 250 - have been working without a new contract for 13 months.
The Turnpike announced it will waive all tolls, including E-ZPass, until midnight on Wednesday, Nov. 24. Then, beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 25, the Turnpike will begin charging a flat toll. The temporary flat toll will be $2 for passenger vehicles and $15 for commercial vehicles, regardless of distance traveled. No toll tickets will be issued at entry.
All E-ZPass customers will pay a MAXIMUM toll of $2 for passenger vehicles and $15 for commercial vehicles. That is, if the standard toll is les than the temporary flat toll, E-ZPass customers will pay the standard toll.
Commercial credit cards will not be accepted.
