TUCSON, Ariz. — Nearly half of the striking Sun Tran drivers are at the top tier of their pay scale, an Arizona Daily Star analysis of newly released salary data shows.
Sun Tran officials confirm that a total of 201 bus drivers — nearly 47 percent — have maxed out their base pay in their position. They’re taking home slightly less than $40,000 in pay and another $15,000 in benefits, including full health-care premiums, according to the report.
The strike, now going into its second month, shows no signs of ending, with the Teamsters and Sun Tran management deadlocked over competing compensation proposals and driver-safety measures, according to the Arizona Daily Star.
