BART offering unions new package that moves closer to union positions on benefits and salaries

OAKLAND, Calif.

BART management is also introducing two new proposals to the union that address various safety concerns.

The BART official hopes that unions would give a 72 hour notice if there is going to be a strike, which means notice could be given tomorrow.

The official also said management is not asking the governor for a cooling off period with the unions at this time.

Talks are planned until 5 p.m, then a break, then talks resume at 7 p.m. Negotiations are also planned for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
