NEW YORK (AP) - About 200 full-time and seasonal workers who repair, maintain and operate New York City’s bike share system have signed their first project.

The Wall Street Journal reports (https://on.wsj.com/1eJyl1y ) Thursday that if Transport Workers Union Local 100 members approve the contract, they’ll get 20 percent raises over 4 ½ years.

Union officials signed the agreement with NYC Bike Share which operates Citi Bike and the parent company, Motivate.

Workers represented by the union include mechanics, technicians and customer service workers.

The union also represents workers with bike share programs in Washington, D.C., Boston and Chicago.
