Muni drivers to vote next week on labor deal 

Union heads representing Muni drivers have reached a tentative deal with The City that could save millions of dollars for the Municipal Transportation Agency and help stave off service cuts and increased costs for senior and disabled Fast Passes.

The agreement will be unveiled this week to the members of Transport Workers Union Local 250-A, who will have to vote on the proposal before it can be approved.

“All I can say is that TWU leaders, the Mayor and MTA agreed to the framework of a proposal to take to the membership,” said Mayor Gavin Newsom spokesman Tony Winnicker in an email. “TWU deserves great credit for stepping up and being an active part of helping to solve MTA's record budget shortfalls and reduce impacts to transit riders.”

A spokesman for the MTA, Judson True, would not provide details of the agreement.
