BART, union employees to vote Thursday
OAKLAND, CA (KGO) -- There will be no BART strike and commuters will have service until at least Thursday after leaders from two of BART's largest unions agreed to take the latest contract offer to its members for a vote.
Union employees are currently working without a contract. A proposed four year contract currently includes no pay raises for three years and a small increase in the fourth.
BART says it would save $100 million. The agency faces a projected budget deficit of $310 million over the next four years.
BART's union officials say if they do decide to strike, they would give reasonable notice. If the contract is rejected, union leaders say they'll ask the governor for a 60-day cooling-off period.
