(Las Vegas, NV)  —  A 60-day strike at the valley’s second-largest cab firm is over.

The union that represents Yellow Checker Star Transportation drivers says the new contract includes an increase in the drivers’ share of the meter, reinstatement of eligibility for the four-day work week of 12 hours per day and 10-hour per day shifts, increases in annual bonuses and other benefits.

In all, the Industrial, Technical and Professional Employees Union (ITPEU)/OPEIU Local 4873 negotiated sixteen wage and benefit changes to the collective bargaining agreement.

The agreement will be signed by both sides on Thursday.

About 1300 union drivers went on strike March 3rd.  They are now back behind the wheel.
