BART resumes labor negotiations today
OAKLAND, Calif. -- BART contract talks resume today with union leaders with only a week and a half to go before another strike could happen.
BART negotiators met yesterday with representatives of SEIU, one of its largest unions. No one is saying whether they made any progress. BART workers are threatening to strike as early as October 11, right after the end of a 60-day cooling off period.
If it happens, the transit agency says it plans to provide limited service using managers to run trains. There would also be free charter buses and around-the-clock carpool hours on some freeways.
