Cooling Off Period
The two sides have failed to hold talks since a cooling off period was ordered in early August.
Negotiations are scheduled for Thursday and Friday. Chris Daly, the political director for Service Employees International Union Local 1021, said a strike is possible on Monday.
BART and its unions remain tens of millions of dollars apart in their contract proposals, the two sides said in testimony before a three-member board appointed by Gov. Jerry Brown to investigate the contract dispute.
Negotiators for BART and unions representing about 2,400 employees are taking a breather Monday after Gov. Jerry Brown intervened to at least temporarily avert a strike.
