Give BART Management Credit

BART management and union leaders reached a tentative agreement on Sunday evening, thereby averting a crippling transit strike that the union had threatened for this morning, according to the Chron. The deal with the train operators and station agents saves BART about $38 million, and allows the agency to meet its goal of slashing $100 million in employee costs for all of its unions, according to the Trib. The deal also is for four years, not two years as the union wanted. It will be interesting to see whether the union’s rank-and-file members will approve the agreement, after they overwhelmingly turned down a similar one last week.
