Dispute may cancel AC Transit weekend service
OAKLAND, CA (KGO) -- AC Transit says it may have to completely cancel all weekend service if the drivers' union won't agree to labor concessions.
Tuesday night, AC Transit had to cancel several transbay bus routes after more than 100 drivers called in sick.
The agency claims an estimated 200 drivers have called in sick each day since July 18. That's when the agency imposed new work rules on the drivers' union.
On Friday, a judge is scheduled to review the union's challenge to overturn the contract.
