Global News files

Skytrain workers have voted 72 per cent in favour of a new contract according to their union, CUPE.

The union was at the bargaining table for eight months before talks stalled in late February.

The three year contract includes wage increases of two per cent in each of the first two years; and 1.75 per cent in year 3.

There were also improvements to maternity benefits and extended health plans for employees.

537 active Skytrain operators, attendants, trades, maintenance workers, office staff and dispatchers are represented by the local. They operate the Expo and Millennium Lines.
