BART to renew labor talks to discuss contract provision

Posted on November 18, 2013

OAKLAND, Calif. — The AP reported that Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) officials want to return to the bargaining table because of a provision that officials said was “erroneously” included in a labor contract. The contract, signed in October, settled a dispute between the union and the agency that caused two strikes.

Agency officials told the AP that a family medical leave provision giving its 2,300 union workers up to six weeks of paid time off each year would be too expensive. The BART board of directors, which is set to vote on the contract on Nov. 21, has ordered the agency's GM to restart talks with union representatives. For the full story, click here.
