Editorial: BART Leaders Should Return to Negotiations
A Sacramento Bee editorial argues that Bay Area Rapid Transit employees should urge their union leaders to return to contract negotiations. Last week, BART employees went on strike after contract discussions over work rules on overtime, scheduling and other issues broke down. The editorial argues, "Union officials need to wake up to the fact that the public will not tolerate this strike for long. The longer it lasts, the greater likelihood that state lawmakers will pass legislation to compel BART workers to honor the no-strike clause in their existing contracts."
