BART Strike When the Bay Bridge Is Closed?

The threat of a crippling BART strike over Labor Day Weekend when the Bay Bridge is closed for reconstruction is growing each day as the transit agency’s main union steadfastly refuses to agree to make concessions. BART management could impose its latest contract offer on the train operators and station agents union as early as today, which could prompt the union to go on strike. If the union does strike, BART’s other unions say they won’t cross the picket line, even though they approved new labor contracts – with concessions – during recent days. And there is no doubt that the train operators and station agents union can exert tremendous pressure by striking from September 3 to September 8 when the bridge is closed to all traffic.
