BART management stands firm on contract proposal

The unions represented by Bay Area Rapid Transit workers are expected to give 72-hour notice of a strike today. It could be the second BART shutdown of the summer if an agreement on a new labor pact is not reached by Sunday. BART management spoke out this afternoon in downtown Oakland, pointing to rising benefit costs as the main problem in negotiations. Tiffany Camhi reports.
