Bay Area Transit Workers Go On Strike
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - JULY 01: Pay gates sit empty at the Embarcadero Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station July 1, 2013 in San Francisco, California. Hundreds of thousands of San Francisco Bay Area commuters are scrambling to find ways to work after two of San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit's (BART)largest unions went on strike at midnight after contract negotiations with management fell apart on Sunday. Train operators, mechanics, station agents and maintenance workers are seeking a five percent wage increase and are fighting management who want to have workers to begin contributing to their pensions, pay more for health insurance and reduce overtime expenses.
