BART Employees On Strike This Monday

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) Board of Directors voted yesterday to enforce a one-year contract for the unionized transit workers- a contract the workers had rejected earlier in the week. BART employees plan to walk off the job Monday morning.

"'At this point we have no choice but to initiate a work action,' said Jesse Hunt, president of the union local that represents about 900 of BART's 3,200 workers."

"BART has a daily ridership of about 340,000. A system shutdown would lead to bigger traffic jams on Bay Area roads and bridges that would extend the normal peak commute periods, transportation officials warn."
