AC Transit calls off potential strike
AC Transit announced early this morning that workers represented by Amalgamated Transit Union 192 would not strike today, even after missing their own midnight deadline for a new labor agreement.
"We are gratified that the talks are continuing and our operators and mechanics are showing up for work," said AC Transit Board President Greg Harper. "We have great concern and respect for our ridership and this action by the ATU shows that the union does, too."
In a statement last week, AC Transit officials announced they would provide some additional transbay service this morning "to the extent possible."
Additional AC Transit buses are expected to run during peak commute hours from the 20th and Broadway station in Downtown Oakland to the Transbay Terminal in San Francisco, and BART will offer limited bus service from its West Oakland and Embarcadero stations.
