BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - After several hours of discussion Tuesday, union officials agreed to take GET's latest offer to striking employees for a vote without recommendation, according to GET spokesperson Gina Hayden.
Hayden said GET offered a three percent, one-year extension on the existing contract retroactive back to July 1.
Union officials indicated they would meet with employees on Wednesday to present the proposal, and they would vote on Thursday.
If employees vote to accept the proposal on Thursday, it then would go to the GET Board of Directors for approval. Employees could return to work as soon as Friday.
GET said if service resumes on Friday or over the weekend, GET customers may use expired passes until Monday, August 18.
GET staff said they will be ready to exchange passes at the downtown and southwest Transit Centers within one to two days after service resumes.
