Sun Tran's $3.6 million proposal includes increases in wages, health and welfare amounting to a 69-cent per hour value in the first year of the contract. That is an 8-cent increase in wages and 61 cents to the Teamsters health and welfare package. The value of the second year hourly increase is 64 cents and the third year, 62 cents. During the strike, Sun Tran is offering limited service. Though daily service will be provided, service will not be available on trips schedule after 6:30 p.m.
