OAKLAND, Calif. — KABC reported that in the final day of the 60-day state mandated cooling-off period, the two sides in a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) labor dispute have yet to reach a deal. If no agreement is established by midnight, BART workers could walk off the job for the second time in recent months.

The two unions representing BART employees declined to give the customary 72 hours' notice this week that they would strike once the cooling-off period expires, indicating that a strike may not be imminent. Union leaders told the news outlet they didn't provide the notice because they wanted to leave all options open for a resolution. BART leaders said they're working equally hard toward a settlement, according to the news outlet.

The unions want a raise of nearly 12% over three years. BART proposed a 10% increase over four years. For the full story, click here.
