SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – The Borough of South Plainfield and South Plainfield PBA #100 hammered out a new labor agreement on Dec 15, 2014.  The current agreement is expiring on Dec 31, 2014.  The new agreement is for four years, and it calls for an annual 1.9% increase across the board.

“I think both sides were eager to get the negotiations out of the way”, said PBA #100 President Peter Magnani.  “In years past, both sides would always ask for a lot which would hold up the talks. This time, I think both sides decided to start off by meeting in the middle which saved a lot of time and avoided any hard feelings.”

“This contract is fair to both the taxpayers, and the PBA,” said Councilman Ray Rusnak.”  “It was refreshing to come to an equitable agreement without having acrimony on either side.”

"I would like to thank the PBA for ratifying a new contract for the next four years,” said Councilman Robert Bengivenga.    “The contract benefits both the members of the PBA as well as the residents of the town. Keeping the salary increases below the 2% cap, and other changes have allowed the Borough to hire new officers over the past few years."
