BART workers set to strike

Posted on June 30, 2005

Workers for Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) in San Francisco will walk off the job July 6 if they cannot agree with management on a new contract.

Leaders of Service Employees International Union 790 have already voted to authorize the strike.

“Our strike captains are ready, our picket signs are ready and our members are ready to walk off the job,” said Josie Mooney, executive director of the union, which represents about 1,450 of BART's 2,700 union workers.

According to the agency's Website, more than 300,000 trips are taken on BART in an average weekday.
