BREAKING: BART strike averted

BART management and union representatives announced just after 7 pm this evening that the BART strike that had been planned for midnight tonight has been called off.

A tentative agreement between BART and the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) has been reached that must be voted on by union members within a week or so. In the meantime, BART will run as normally scheduled this week.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, U.S. Rep. Barbara Lee, and others were present at the announcement.
