BART Still Running So Far -- August 6, 2013

BART management failed to negotiate seriously during the 30-day delay.  In fact, the union-busting chief negotiator, who was paid $400,000 to negotiate, was on vacation during much of the period.  Sunday night we were watching the 10 O'Clock News, waiting for the announcement, when union leaders came out and announced that Governor Jerry Brown had ordered no strike or lockout for seven days while a panel investigates the matter.  When they report, he can order a cooling-off period of up to 60 days.
