BART workers went back to work Tuesday morning after going on strike last Friday, leaving residents of the Bay Area with no commuter rail service for four days. This occurred because negotiations between the Northern California transit service and labor unions failed, specifically over items such as managing workers’ pay stubs and overtime scheduling. There was also an approximate 4% gap in terms of wage increases between the agency and unions. BART, America’s fifth largest rail system, usually serves 400,000 riders per workday and endured its second strike in four months. Fortunately, sanity prevailed as a deal was reached and workers returned to their positions after what was a tumultuous negotiation process. However, service returned with some rough patches, namely train delays of as much as 45 minutes.
