AC Transit Strike
Alameda-Contra Costa Transit workers have ratified a tentative contract agreement, averting a possible strike threatened after union votes rejected two previous agreements earlier this year, AC Transit officials said.
AC Transit bus drivers and other workers were set to vote on a tentative contract this week, after management and union negotiators hammered out a last minute deal just as a 60-day cooling off period was set to expire.

Gov. Jerry Brown said Tuesday that he will seek a 60-day cooling-off period in the labor dispute between AC Transit and its workers, which nearly led to a strike last week.
A three-person panel appointed by Gov. Jerry Brown was holding a hearing Monday on a labor dispute between AC Transit and its workers that nearly led to a strike last week.
With BART and AC Transit workers possibly going on strike, a new analysis shows how much money unions representing transit workers donate to state lawmakers.
AC Transit’s board of directors asked Gov. Jerry Brown to seek a 60-day cooling off period to eliminate the possibility that the bus agency’s employees could go on strike this week.
On the heels of a possible BART strike, workers for AC Transit issued their own 72-hour strike notice on Monday, which could lead to a possible walkout Thursday morning.
AC Transit workers have voted to reject a tentative contract agreement reached with management last week, union officials said Sunday.
The union representing nearly 1,800 AC transit workers said it reached a tentative contract agreement with the agency late Tuesday night, averting a strike that would have impacted more than 180,000 daily riders.
