    Sounds like BART employees voted to strike.

    Long past time to bar strikes by public transit workers–every bit as necessary as police, fire services. A rigorous negotiation regime should be enacted with both carrots and sticks to get both sides to the table.

    What about nurses and teachers? I don’t think they’re any less important than transit workers but they do have the right to strike. If schools and hospitals can get substitute teacher and nurses to maintain some level of operation, there are alternatives if workers decide to strike (private buses and vans, casual carpooling, bicycling, etc).
