Tentative Deal Reached Between BART and ATU: No Strike Monday!

BART management and the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555 have reached a tentative deal, averting a strike that was scheduled to start at midnight tonight.

The announcement came from BART Board Director James Fang and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, according to KCBS radio, and followed a round of weekend negotiations that resumed Saturday afternoon.

The deal must still be ratified by the ATU's 900 members. More coverage at SF Gate, KCBS, ABC7 and CBS5.
