Unions Sue BART for Removing Paid Family Leave Language From Labor Contract
On Tuesday, two of Bay Area Rapid Transit's largest labor unions filed a lawsuit against the transit agency alleging that BART's board exhibited unfair labor practices by excluding family-leave language from its labor contract. BART management said it agreed in error to a contract provision allowing BART employees to receive additional paid leave for six of the 12 weeks granted under the Family Medical Leave Act. The unions have requested that Alameda County Superior Court uphold the labor contract with the paid family leave provision.
