LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Striking drivers with Yellow Checker Star Transportation on Wednesday claimed to have won the standoff, announcing a new contract will be signed on Thursday.

The union representing the striking drivers said the 60-day strike and ongoing negotiations resulted in a contract which includes an increase in drivers' share of the meter, reinstatement of eligibility for a four-day work week of 10- and 12-hour a day shifts, increases in bonuses and other benefits.

In all, the union says it has negotiated 16 wage and benefit changes to the collective bargaining agreement.

The union said the contract will be signed Thursday at 9 a.m. at Yellow Checker Star's corporate headquarters in Las Vegas.

The strike began on March 3.

FOX5 has reached out to the union and Yellow Checker Star for comment and will have updated information as it becomes available.
