BART board doles out raised to top execs
April 11, 2014, 05:00 AM

BART directors voted unanimously Thursday to give raises totaling about 3.7 percent this year to General Manager Grace Crunican and other top officials at the transit agency.

The percentage increase in compensation and benefits for the top executives is the same that employees represented by labor unions received in a new contract that was approved early this year, BART spokesman Jim Allison said.

That’s in line with BART’s historical practice of giving similar raises to top officials to those it gives to rank-and-file workers, he said.

BART directors voted to give Crunican and the other top executives raises of 1.86 percent retroactive to Jan. 1 plus another 1.8 percent increase on July 1, according to Allison.

Crunican’s raise will increase the $323,200 compensation and benefit package she received in 2013.

The other top officials affected by the vote are general counsel Matthew Burrows, controller-treasurer Scott Schroeder, district secretary Kenneth Duran and independent police auditor Mark Smith.
