AC Transit labor dispute continues for 5th day

SAN FRANCISCO

At least 180 Amalgamated Transit Union members failed to show up for work Friday.

Drivers stopped showing up for work after the transit district imposed a new labor contract last Sunday.

But the union says drivers are staying home because of scheduling changes or because they were assigned routes for which they haven't been trained.

A judge is expected to rule on their request for a temporary restraining order next week.
