BART Board Approves Revised Labor Contract
On Tuesday, the Bay Area Rapid Transit's board voted to approve a revised labor deal to resolve union contract disagreements on overtime, scheduling and other issues. The revised agreement drops a provision allowing BART employees to receive additional paid leave for six of the 12 weeks permitted under the Family Medical Leave Act and grants workers extended bereavement leave and potential bonuses. The unions are expected to vote on the revised deal this month.
