Members of the SMART Transportation Division's Local 1440 in Staten Island, N.Y., last week ratified a tentative agreement with New York City's Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA).

The agreement includes a 15.88 percent wage increase with retroactive earnings, along with improved sick leave, personal leave and holiday pay, SMART officials said in a press release.

Additionally, the agreement includes improvements to medical, dental and vision coverage.
