Contract talks to avert a possible BART strike are set to resume Monday.

Three negotiation sessions are scheduled for this week.

BART management and labor leaders resumed contract negotiations last week, but little progress has been made on key issues including wages, pensions and health care benefits.

If no deal is reached, employees could strike as early as Oct. 11, when a cooling-off period ordered last month by Governor Jerry Brown expires.
