BART and Unions go back to the bargaining table

Bay Area Rapid Transit and its unions are back at the bargaining table today. The contract negotiations come one day after Governor Jerry Brown’s board of inquiry heard hours of testimony from both sides. The public hearing revealed wide differences in the contract proposals from management and BART’s unions and months of strained relations between negotiators. This morning, BART’s board of directors called a special meeting between labor negotiators to kick-start the bargaining process again. Tiffany Camhi reports.
