BART Strike Update: On Hold for Union Vote

A fresh update just came up minutes ago from KPIX news at 11PM:

BART has proposed an offer to the Amalgamated and SEIU unions, and now the unions are forced to make their members to take a vote on this.

Since organizing a vote would take some time (within a week), this means a delay in a possible strike.
  • If the vote passes: No strike and everyone goes home happy.
  • If the vote fails: Back to the bargaining table or possibly a strike.
But at this time, the reports show that a strike is unlikely at this immediate time while the formal procedure of an employee vote is completed. But as my favorite college professor once taught me, always expect the unexpected.
