BART update

As of 3:10 p.m. PDT, there was no agreement between BART and its labor unions which are set to strike at 12:01 a.m. tomorrow if a deal is not made.

From BART's website:
The latest offer BART received from its unions included pay raises and incentives that would add $58 million to BART's deficit over the next three years. BART riders and Bay Area taxpayers can't afford to pay for these increases. To keep BART's budget balanced, we need a contract that reduces the budget deficit; the latest offer would only add to it.
I, for one, will plan an early start to work tomorrow to avoid what could be one of the worst rush hours in Bay Area history.
