  • Top wages for drivers will rise from $16.63 to $18.53 an hour.
  •  

  • The top hourly rate for mechanics will increase from $20.04 to $21.94.

  •  

  • Sun Tran will increase its contributions to the Teamster pension fund by 25 cents an hour over three years, and continue to pay for 100% of the health and welfare premium for employees and their families.
