BART, unions to resume bargaining this afternoon


BART management will be meeting with union leaders this afternoon to resume contract negotiations, a BART spokesman said.

A federal mediator who has been working with management and the two striking unions throughout the labor dispute will be at the meeting.

“We’re going to try to reach an agreement,” BART spokesman Rick Rice said.

If an agreement is reached by 6 p.m. today, Rice said trains will be running again Tuesday morning.

Service Employees International Union Local 1021 and Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555 representatives will meet face to face with management as talks resume, he said.

Rice said he did not yet know where or when the meeting will take place.
