WALNUT CREEK (CBS SF) – With the threat of another BART strike looming, an Orinda city councilman is pushing for legislation to ban transit workers from walking off the job.
Councilman Steve Glazer, a candidate for state Assembly, launched a petition earlier this month in favor of prohibiting transit worker strikes statewide.READ MORE: South Bay BART Extension Funding Dropped From $1.9 Trillion COVID-19 Relief Package
Glazer subsequently held petition drives at the Orinda and Lafayette BART stations.
Monday morning, he did the same at the Walnut Creek BART station.
“The consequence (of a BART strike) is on us. Because they close down the system, we can’t get to work, we can’t get to school, we can’t get to our appointments, so that consequence should be taken off the table,” he said.
