Believe us when we say we are just as sick as you are of this story/non-story that won't goddamn go away, but ONCE AGAIN, this weekend, there looms the threat of a BART strike, or maybe there doesn't. It would appear, since the threat has come and gone about nine times now, that all concerned are committed to negotiating this thing through and that ONCE AGAIN this will be an empty threat. But BART employees remain pissed off about a new contract that would curtail their overtime -- something that cost BART about $30 million last year -- and now that their contract has expired, workers have nothing stopping them from a walkout. So watch out everyone (especially those with homes or obligations in the East Bay)! It could be for real this time. Or not.
