Some rail workers unions are poised to vote on a tentative agreement they reached with New Jersey Transit last weekend.

But it's not clear when the results will be made public.

NJ Transit reached the deal with 11 unions late Friday night, about 24 hours before a strike deadline. More than 4,000 workers are affected by the agreement.

Each union will now vote on specific contracts for their units, and some of those votes were due to start Tuesday night. If any of the unions reject their contracts, they would have to return to the bargaining table.

The unions have been working without a contract since the last one expired in mid-2011.

Once all the unions ratify their contracts, NJ Transit's Board of Directors will vote on it. Gov. Chris Christie will then have the final say on the agreement.
