Here are some points:

  • Cuomo Announced 100% Electronic tolling
  • The E-Zpass System is administered by Xerox Corporation.
  • Xerox has hired a union avoidance specialist to resist workers demands for dignified employement.
  • Billionaire investor Carl Icahn used his investment power to split off the E-zpass system into it a new company. The new company will be taking over 2017. 
  • The company will squeeze profits from the contract deal with NY State Authorities by pushing on workers to make faster calls.
  • The toll collector job was a good union job that is being replaced by low wage and mostly non-union call center and walk in center workers.
  • Our tolls should be for tranportation infrastructure improvements on our ,dignified employement for the workers, and quality customer care.
