TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Members of Teamster Local 104 voted to ratify a new contract with Sun Tran on Saturday, July 8.

The agreement means there will be no disruption in bus service, according to representatives from Sun Tran. 

A tentative agreement was reached on Friday, July 7.

Teamsters had a chance to review the proposed contract and vote to accept or reject the offer. 

Negotiating teams worked to come to an acceptable 3-year agreement, in the hopes of avoiding a repeat of the 42-day strike that took place between August and September 2015.  

Details of the contract will be released later. 

Saturday night, the Sun Tran Alerts account on Twitter shared the following statement: “This is a great day for Tucson, Sun Tran, Teamsters Local 104 & especially for our bus riders,” -Sun Tran General Manager Ginger Stevens.
