The leaders of New York's transit workers union and transit officials have approved a tentative new contract.
The agreement comes five days after the union ended a paralyzing
bus and subway strike that stranded (m) millions of commuters.
The tentative contract would give workers pay raises and require them to contribute to their health care plans. The contract provides raises of three percent, four percent and three and a-half percent over three years.
The union's 33-thousand-700 members still have to approve the deal.
