BART Strike Continues

There's still no agreement between BART and its major labor union as the San Francisco areas mass transit system inches closer to yet another Monday morning strike.

Both sides say there has been more back and forth between them after talks broke off about 11:30 p.m. Saturday night. BART lead negotiator Thomas Hock said talks would pick up again Sunday morning, but the two sides remain far apart on important issues like wages, pensions and health care costs.

"I would hope that we're not wasting our time. I mean that's our intent to try to get it done. I mean the board, the management, nobody wants a strike. I'm sure the unions don't either," Hock said.

Union leader Antonette Bryant accused management of dragging its feet during negotiations.

"The problem is things have not been coming across that we need, so we are getting some information that we need. We're looking at proposals, we're exchanging proposals," Bryant said.
