The BART Board of Directors has set a special meeting in January to approve the amended labor contracts with two of its largest unions.

The BART board will meet January 2 to vote on the tentative agreements with SEIU Local 1021 and ATU Local 1555.

The board usually waits until the unions vote on the contract to cast a vote.

However, this time the board will vote first.
