SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Bay Area Rapid Transit's two unions say they won't walk off the job Monday to allow one more day of labor talks as a midnight strike deadline passes.
The unions said late Sunday that they were close to reaching a new labor agreement with the transit agency, but they needed to iron out several more issues.
BART's general manager said a last and final offer was presented to the unions Sunday.
BART workers went on strike for nearly five days in July and were set to do so again Friday when a cooling-off period ordered by Gov. Jerry Brown ended, but they agreed to negotiate through the weekend.
