The city and one of its construction unions announced a deal that will give the union $90 million to split among its 1,000 workers. The back-pay settlement will mean that every worker will be getting an average pay-off of $90,000, and the workers will also receive large hourly pay increases to equalize their wages with that of private sector workers. Construction worker Neron Banks told the [Daily News](:, Its like hitting the Lotto, Im going to Disney World for my vacation, [then] to Brazil. Im traveling the seven seas. The deal between City Hall and District Council 37 was first reported by the Chief-Leader, and in one month youll be able to read [their story]( (The Chief-Leader only allows subscribers access to its articles, but after four weeks anyone can peek into their archives.)
