Meanwhile, the current labor fiasco in the Bay Area remains unresolved. AC Transit workers voted down a new contract, even though negotiations were thought to be successful. AC Transit workers could very well walk out any day now, after delaying their own strike on account of currently unresolved actions by BART operators. The development already adds a wrinkle to the woes commuters could potentially face, since AC Transit is the main bus operator in the East Bay. Outright banning BART employees from striking has received only tepid support from state lawmakers who would have to craft and approve such a ban. Neither side will exit the problem without a loss of goodwill from the public, as both operators and managers receive large salaries and benefits packages that are comparable to those found in other similarly sized transit agencies.
