A federal arbitrator is expected to rule Monday on a new three year contract for Muni drivers after they overwhelmingly rejected the deal their leaders and Muni management had negotiated.

This is the first time the operators wages and benefits were open to wide ranging negotiations after the voters approved proposition g back in November.

One key change under Prop G is that drivers are no longer guaranteed the second highest wages in the nation.

The union has filed lawsuits against that proposition in both federal and state courts.
