BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - GET Bus spokesperson Gina Hayden says both sides have reached a tentative agreement in the GET bus strike.
Hayden says unlike the last proposal, this one would have the recommendation of union leaders. The tentative agreement was reached at 7:12 p.m.
Both sides had been talking sine 1 p.m. Friday.
Terms of the agreement are not yet available.
Union spokesperson Chester Suniga says he wants to share the terms of the agreement with union members before making them public.
Suniga did say that this agreement is longer and has a smaller pay increase than the last proposal.
That proposal was 1 year with a three percent increase.
Suniga says he will present the deal to union members at 4 p.m. Saturday then a 12-hour vote will follow.
Suniga says voting will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
Its not clear how soon busses will start running again.
The GET board must wait for the union vote then give final approval.
Estimates range from Monday to Wednesday of next week before regular bus service resumes.
One bus driver 23ABC spoke with says she is happy with deal.
