New Contract Approved at Universal Studios

June 17, 1997

Tour drivers and engineers at Universal Studios have approved a new four-year contract.

The vote was 80 to 17, and the agreement is retroactive to May 10.

About 100 Universal Studios tram drivers and two dozen mechanics are represented by Teamster Local 399. Last month, the union local narrowly voted against Universal's contract offer and talked of a possible strike.

The strike was avoided when the company altered the contract offer, changing various entitlements and time off for workers, but maintaining the overall value of the contract.
