BART Contract Negotiations Continue, Employees Could Strike if Deal on Health Benefits, Pensions Not Reached
Last week, Bay Area Rapid Transit management and union leaders resumed contract negotiations on issues such as pensions and health care benefits. However, little progress was made, and employees could strike if a deal is not reached by Oct. 11, when a cooling-off period ordered by Gov. Jerry Brown expires. BART management and union leaders are scheduled to return to negotiations today.
