GARY, Ind. (AP) — The Indiana Toll Road’s toll collectors have voted to be represented by the Teamsters union.

Highway operator Indiana Toll Road Concession Co. LLC said Friday the vote was 108-103. Eighteen employees did not vote. The company said it would respect the vote and meet its legal obligation to bargain with the union.

ITR Concession beat back one Teamster effort earlier this year when road maintenance workers voted 62-42 against the union.

The union says toll collectors it has organized in other states make an average of nearly $21 an hour. IRT Concession pays between $10 and $14 an hour.
