BART management and the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555 plan to resume talks this afternoon in an effort to avert a Monday strike.
"We have had communications with management and we're meeting back at the table at 1 o'clock this afternoon to do everything we can to...get a contract that's fair to our members and the riding public," Jesse Hunt, the president of Local 1555, told reporters in Oakland this morning, according to KCBS radio.
The report said Hunt had expressed a willingness to delay the strike if BART would agree to roll back the contract it imposed on his members. But a BART spokesperson said management is not willing to do that.
We'll tweet any developments throughout the weekend. More coverage at KCBS.
