San Francisco • The San Francisco transit union whose workers took part in a sickout that stalled the city's famed cable cars and disrupted other service says it has reached a tentative agreement on a new contract.
Officials with Transport Workers Union Local 250 say they will present the terms of the contract with the city's Municipal Transportation Agency to their members during a special meeting Monday. They reached the tentative deal late Friday.
It 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.
