So, you may recall the kerfuffle about BART workers wanting to strike because their wage increase might get written out of the current contract because of, you know, the CRUMBLING ECONOMY and the massive budget shortfall the transit agency is facing. Anyhow, they missed the June 30th deadline but the unions agreed not to strike after state mediators got involved. Talks have been ongoing, and tonight at midnight is the second deadline. If everything falls apart, the unions are required to give 72 hours notice before striking, so once again, Monday might be a bus-and-ferry kind of day.
