BART to hire consultant for investigation into labor talks

OAKLAND, Calif.

The last round of labor talks led to two strikes, a contract dispute, and cost BART more than $8 million.

The cost includes consulting fees.

A third of that went to lead negotiator Thomas Hock, who's contract wasn't renewed after it became clear he missed the provision giving workers six weeks a year of family paid leave.
