OAKLAND, Calif. — The Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) and three of its major unions reached a four-year contract extension that includes raises and stems the possibility of a strike for the next five years, ABC News reports.

The tentative agreement comes as BART officials campaign for a $3.5 billion bond measure to rebuild its aging infrastructure that will be voted on in November. The contract agreement, which extends the contract negotiated after strikes took place in 2013, includes a raise of 10.5% per employee, spread over four years. For the full story, click here.
