BART Strike Called-Off

Phew... BART's management and the ATU worked-out their problems and have made a deal. This deal means there will be NO BART strike starting on Monday at 12:01PM and your commute won't be a world of hell.

But be aware that this "deal" made between the union and BART management is not 100% official until the union votes and passes the new contract. If the vote fails, the threat of another strike could happen again.

One big factor about why the ATU rejected the first contract offer by BART is that the union wrote (in a letter to members) to not support the contract. Let's hope they won't say anything negative in their next letter regarding this modified contract on the table.

So... what does this mean for Akit's Furlough Adventures? Based on the active poll right now, it looks like I'm going to Twin Peaks, unless if you can sway the vote to send my butt to the Rockridge district of Oakland. Voting officially ends at 11:00PM tonight!
