NJ Transit to suspend payouts to non-union employees

New Jersey Transit officials have decided to suspend payouts to non-union employees for unused vacation days. The move comes in response to Gov. Chris Christie's criticism of the practice. A Christie spokesman said the administration hopes the agency will also end the benefits for union employees in their next contracts.

Payroll information shows NJ Transit paid $2.2 million to current and retired employees for unused vacation time last year.
