BART Workers on Strike as Contracts Expire with No New Deal

July 1, 2013

After forgoing pay raises for five years  and making $100 million in concessions four years  ago to help the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system through rough economic times, about 2,500 BART workers are on the picket lines throughout the San Francisco Bay area after their contracts expired at 12:01 a.m. PDT today.

Workers also say BART did not responded to a number of their safety concerns for both workers and riders.
