AASP-NJ to Present Seminars on Labor Rates
May 7, 2019—This month, the Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP-NJ) will host two seminars focused on addressing labor rates and procedure issues through the Variable Rate System (VRS) by National AutoBody Research.
AASP-NJ will host the seminars at both north and south New Jersey locations. The north event will be held Wed., May 22 at the Holiday Inn in Totowa; the south event will be held Thurs., May 23 at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center in Toms River. Sign-in begins at 7 p.m. with the meeting starting at 7:30 p.m.
"There are so many benefits to the Variable Rate System, and we need to support it. It's the only independent market study out there that has anything to do with rates," said Jerry McNee, AAS-NJ president, in a statement.
"We can't depend on the insurance companies to determine our prevailing rates, as they will just tell us what they want to pay. We have to stand up for our rights, and at the end of the day there is strength in numbers. Everyone should come to these sessions ..."
