Bay Area Transit Workers Go On Strike

OAKLAND, CA - JULY 01: Commuters sit in a packed AC Transit bus 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.
