Unionized drivers and maintenance workers for the Société de transport de l’Outaouais transit system have voted to accept a new contract offer from the employer.

Some 526 employees voted by more than two-thirds majority to accept the four-year deal, retroactive to Jan. 1, 2015 and ending Dec. 31, 2019.

The new contract offer represents a wage increase of 9.8 per cent over the four-year term, in addition to a two-per-cent signing bonus and other bonuses, including an increased contribution to the union’s pension fund.
