The Nation

November 11, 1986

Greyhound Lines Inc., the nation's largest inter-city bus company, and the Amalgamated Transit Union Council reached tentative agreement on a two-year contract for 7,500 drivers and mechanics, apparently ending the company's threat to sell the unit. Ratification of the pact by union members was expected by Dec. 8, officials in Phoenix said. Details of the agreement were not released, but the Arizona Republic reported that it contained at least $27 million in concessions, including a 9% reduction in drivers' wages. The settlement avoided a repeat of a bitter strike in 1983.
