Muni operator contract expires on Sunday

The current contract expires for San Francisco Muni operators on Sunday, and there's no word of any progress on a new deal. The last known contract talks happened Wednesday.

Transportation officials on Sunday told ABC7 News they want to resume mediation early this week.

A mediated agreement calls for raises of more than 11 percent over two years, but requires workers to contribute 7.5 percent to their pensions, which the city currently covers.

Muni has said if there's no new agreement Sunday, the current contract remains in place for a year and drivers would give up a pay raise set for July 1.
