BART sees little change in newest proposal from unions
BART spokesman Rick Rice issued the following statement in response to the unions latest proposal:
"This is not a game-changing proposal. We do not see that it represents significant movement. They went from 5% per year wage increases with a pension swap to 4.5% per year increases with a pension swap, which is still 17% over three years.
The District is firm on negotiating a four-year contract and if you extrapolate this new proposal over that period this is still a 21.5% increase. We will review it carefully and be back at the table tomorrow.
The Board has given us our authority and our current offer with a 10% pay increase over four years is at the end of the runway."
