BART Workers Announce Strike

Unions representing Bay Area Rapid Transit workers have given notice they will strike on Monday, shutting down the rail line that carries 400 thousand people a day across the Bay Area. Unions and BART management have failed to resolve pocketbook and safety issues, setting the stage for a BART strike that could be even longer and more disruptive than the strike in July.
