AC Transit labor dispute continues for 5th day
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- AC Transit riders were forced to work around a driver sickout for a fifth straight day.
At least 180 Amalgamated Transit Union members failed to show up for work Friday.
Drivers stopped showing up for work after the transit district imposed a new labor contract last Sunday.
But the union says drivers are staying home because of scheduling changes or because they were assigned routes for which they haven't been trained.
A judge is expected to rule on their request for a temporary restraining order next week.
