Union officials say Metro Transit drivers and other members wrap up voting Monday on a new contract offer from the Metropolitan Council.
Both sides have declined to comment on the offer.
This is the second contract vote by the 2,300 members of the Amalgamated Transit Union 1005. Last month, they overwhelmingly rejected the first Met Council contract offer that included a wage freeze and higher health insurance charges and co-pays.
Both sides resumed talks earlier this month and then turned to the Bureau of Mediation Services for help. Metro Transit drivers went on strike six years ago, causing a drop in transit ridership that took two years to recover from.
Metro Transit supplies about 90 percent of the Twin Cities public bus service, and also operates Hiawatha light rail and Northstar Commuter Rail.
