S.F. Superior Court Judge Orders BART Employees To Work for Next 60 Days, Averts Strike at Least Until Oct. 11
At the request of Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and Bay Area Rapid Transit management, a San Francisco Superior Court judge on Sunday ordered BART workers -- who were threatening to strike Monday morning -- to continue to work for the next 60 days. BART's labor unions have said they will strike if an agreement on pay raises and health care and pension contributions is not reached by Oct. 11.
