SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco transit agency says it has reached a tentative agreement on a new contract with its union whose workers took part in a sickout that stalled the city's famed cable cars and disrupted other services.
Municipal Transportation Agency director Ed Reiskin told board members on Monday that a deal was reached with Transport Workers Union Local 250 on Thursday.
Union officials say they will present a contract to members during a special meeting Monday.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The tentative agreement comes about four weeks after drivers called in sick after overwhelmingly rejecting a contract they said would have required them to pay more for their pension. The sickout lasted for three days.
Transit agency spokesman Paul Rose says the union will vote on the contract July 7 and the board will do the same July 15.
