BART workers went on strike Friday and trains are shut down, setting the stage for the second Bay Area commute nightmare in three months.
Just after midnight, union leaders picked up picket signs and said they would not go back to work until they reach a contract agreement with management, stranding 200,000 people who ride BART roundtrip each day. Although workers had threatened strikes five times in the past week, this time they had finally reached their breaking point.
Bart is recommending telecommuting if that’s an option or find alternative routes. Either way I’m sure this will throw a wrench in many people’s plan this morning. Drive safe today, it’s going to be crazy out there.
