BART statement on SEIU contract approval

BART issued the following statement:

“We are pleased BART’s SEIU workers have approved the labor agreement,” BART General Manager Grace Crunican said.  “ATU has not announced results yet.  Both our employees and the public will benefit from the comprehensive package approved tonight by SEIU. The contract lays the groundwork for continued reliable service for years to come. The contract provides a cost-of-living wage increase for employees and addresses the growing cost of employee benefits.  It also enables the use of modern technology to streamline operations and ensures financial sustainability to allow BART to reinvest in its aging system.”
