BART strike in San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Commuters in the San Francisco Bay area will be able to ride the transit Tuesday.
"It's with regret to say we don't have a deal. We have given the district a proposal. We are attempting to reach a deal and reach a bargain and get a contract, but that has not been reached yet," said Union Representative Pete Castelli.
The midnight deadline has passed without a new contract for the Bay Area Rapid Transit workers and commuters waited in suspense on whether the workers would strike.
But an official announced around 4:00 Tuesday morning that the transit would still be running as negotiations continue Tuesday.
Negotiations have been ongoing since the weekend.
