More than 40 transit workers with the Community Action Agency in Columbiana County should return to work early next week.

Although the vote was not unanimous, workers ratified a deal to end the 10-day strike Friday evening. The CAA board will meet on Monday to vote on the new contract.

The four-year deal offers a $o.30-cent-per-hour increase the first year and $0.25 cents the next three years, for a total of $1.05 in per-hour raises over the life of the contract.

The Community Action Rural Transit System provides about 500 trips a day to people needing rides in the county.
