OAKLAND, CA - JULY 01: A Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) union worker with SEIU Local 1021 walks a picket line in front of the Lake Merritt station on July 1, 2013 in Oakland, California. Hundreds of thousands of San Francisco Bay Area commuters are scrambling to find ways to work after the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) workers from the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555 went on strike at midnight after contract negotiations with management fell apart on Sunday. Train operators, mechanics, station agents and maintenance workers are seeking a five percent wage increase and are fighting management who want to have workers to begin contributing to their pensions, pay more for health insurance and reduce overtime expenses.
