SF Bay Area transit trains to run, talks continue
Friday - 10/11/2013, 4:50am EDT
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- A major San Francisco Bay Area rapid transit system will continue to run train service after unions and management agreed to extend labor talks past a midnight deadline.
Bay Area Rapid Transit and two of its unions agreed late Thursday to resume talks on Friday and possibly through the weekend as they were facing the end of a 60-day, state-mandated cooling-off period that prohibited a strike.
If the clock had stuck midnight with no agreement, BART workers could have walked off the job -- and hundreds of thousands of commuters could have been left stranded again.
BART workers walked off the job for nearly five days in July.
