‘TRAINS WILL RUN’
Agreement averts Bay Area rail strike
A potentially crippling commuter rail strike in the San Francisco Bay Area was averted Sunday as management and unionists reached an agreement hours before a strike deadline, officials said.
Officials from Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555 and Bay Area Rapid Transit negotiated through the weekend in a last-ditch effort to avoid a walkout affecting some 330,000 riders who use the nation’s fifth largest rail system on weekdays. The pact still must be ratified by BART’s 900 operators and ticket agents.
"We’re pleased to announce with this tentative agreement, our members will be working tomorrow," union president Jesse Hunt said. "Trains will run."
