Keep BART Running [SEIU 1021]
It's hard to believe, but after two strikes and six months of negotiations, the BART negotiation saga is still being written. No one is likely to be happy with the ending, either.
After six months of contentious negotiations, two strikes and, finally, a hard-won labor agreement, BART's two largest unions are not about to give in.
What BART management calls a pricey error in the recently approved deal with its unions could end up being costly for the transit system’s riders and the Bay Area, especially if any future fervid negotiations fail and lead to another strike. The transit system needs to contain the fallout from this oversight by highly paid professionals on its team instead of pushing it back onto anyone else.
