BART’s Largest Union Ratifies Labor Contract, Health Care Leave Provision Dropped
On Monday, the Bay Area Rapid Transit's largest employee union -- a chapter of the Service Employees International Union -- voted to approve a ratified a four-year contract that will include a series of new and extended worker benefits but eliminates a paid health care leave provision. BART said the provision -- which would have provided up to six weeks of paid family medical leave -- was dropped because it was included in the contract in error.
