Pittston, PA-"More than 900 UNITE HERE workers at the T.J. Maxx Distribution center in Pittston overwhelmingly ratified a new contract this week. Both the union and management had been negotiating since Dec. 22, according to Nancy Hughes, a representative for the Wilkes-Barre office of UNITE HERE.
The union vote on the contract came after the company offered a -�last and final offer,-� Ms. Hughes told The Scranton Times Tribune newspaper. One of the biggest obstacles for the negotiations was over health care benefits. Under the new contract, workers will keep their current health plan.
