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.

Terms of the new deal were not disclosed.

San Francisco transit spokesman Paul Rose said the agency plans to discuss rescinding the previous contract offer and extending the deadline for a new deal at a meeting on Monday.
