WINNIPEG - Winnipeg and its transit workers have reached a tentative agreement

Amalgamated Transit Union and the city came to the deal Thursday with the help of a conciliation officer.

The settlement must still be ratified by both ATU membership and city council.

Winnipeg Transit carries more than 130,000 riders each weekday and employs approximately 1,100 bus operators and about 250 maintenance staff.

Both sides had worked out an agreement last month but union members voted against it last week.
