UPDATED – Heads Up: BART workers WILL strike on MONDAY

13 Aug

UPDATE: The strike has been averted for now so trains should be running as usual tomorrow (Monday).

UPDATE: ATU has announced that workers will strike, not tomorrow, but on Monday. Check out alternative transit options at AC Transit’s website.

In case you haven’t been following the negotiations, Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) member rejected BART’s contract offer earlier this week and the BART Board voted 9-0 this afternoon to impose contract conditions on ATU. The head of the ATU, Jesse Hunt, has said that workers could strike as early as TOMORROW (Friday).

There’s still time for a miracle to happen, but I’d recommend that anyone who depends on BART start looking for alternative means of transportation to work, school, or other commitments for tomorrow.

I’ll post an update later today in this post about whether BART workers will strike or not. Feel free to use the comments below to ask about alternative transportation options.

    Best way to beat BART strike blues is with a TransLink card! You can use it on ACT and MUNI, and then it works on BART once the strike’s over. Thanks to Becks I now appreciate how wonderful and convenient TransLink is!
