For a third day, hundreds of thousands of San Francisco Bay Area commuters are scrambling to find ways to work as two of San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit's (BART) largest unions remain on strike while they continue contract negotiations with management. Train operators, mechanics, station agents and maintenance workers are seeking a five percent wage increase and are fighting management who want to have workers to begin contributing to their pensions, pay more for health insurance and reduce overtime expenses.
