BART Strike Looms

BART unions appear to be headed for a strike, which would cripple the Bay Area’s commute. According to the Chron, BART unions want more time to negotiate new contracts, but the agency’s management is determined to implement cuts by July 1 and has asked Governor Schwarzenegger to not intervene. BART management wants to slash about $100 million from it labor costs, but the unions have resisted, noting that BART brass has routinely wasted money. The unions are right, of course, but BART employees also are overpaid, as is management.
