San Francisco Transit Unions Reach Deal

Will be sent to members for vote


San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit officials and union leaders have announced a new labor agreement, saying the final issue in their ongoing dispute has been resolved.

The transit system and its two largest unions have been involved in months-long negotiations that stalled recently over paid medical leave time for employees.

BART said in a statement early Saturday that the deal will be recommended to the board of directors for approval as soon as possible.
