Slight progress made in long BART labor dispute
October 04, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

OAKLAND — With about a week to go before a possible second strike, Bay Area Rapid Transit officials and labor leaders say they made slight progress in negotiations but remain far apart on wages.

The parties said Thursday that they reached a deal on pension contributions, but are still at odds over compensation, health care and safety.

The unions want nearly a 12 percent raise over three years while BART is still proposing a 10 percent increase over four years.

If no new contract is reached, the unions could strike again as early as Oct. 11 when a 60-day cooling-off period ordered by Gov. Jerry Brown expires.

BART workers walked off the job for four and a half days in early July, leading to major traffic jams throughout the Bay Area.
