Members of BART's two biggest unions will vote Friday on a tentative deal for a new four-year contract that ended a bitter strike.

Workers would get a 15.4 percent raise over four years. Their health coverage payments would go up from $92 a month to $129 a month and they'll start contributing to their pensions. If both unions approve the deal, BART's board would vote on it either during its regular meeting on November 21, or at a special meeting before then.
