OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — They've had 59 days for heated talks to chill, but the two sides in a Bay Area Rapid Transit labor dispute still haven't reached a deal.
It's the last day of a state-mandated cooling-off period today -- and if the day ends with no agreement, BART's workers could once again walk off the job — and thousands of Northern California commuters could be stranded.
In a positive sign, leaders of the two unions representing BART employees declined to give the customary 72 hours' notice that a strike was coming, but that does nothing to stop a walk-off come midnight.
Union leaders say they're leaving every possible option open, and BART leaders say they're working equally hard toward a settlement.
BART workers went on strike for four-and-a-half days in July before Gov. Jerry Brown mandated the cool-off.
