I hope the agreement hammered out by the union thugs is soundly rejected. They need to be fired and replaced with NON-union advocates.

Note...I totally agree with Will Marsten. Terminate all the BART folks...the Board, The Management and the over compensated front-line employees.

START OVER...BART you accomplished nothing.

Just my opinion, Julia Pardini from Alamo

Everyone complains about the BART workers but nobody says anything about the BART general manager who always says BART doesn't have any money. Between the fare collection, state tax and federal taxes one might wonder what the management is doing with the money. One would think it is time to open the books to see how BART management is spending the tax payers hard earned money. One of the negotiators owns buses that were used during the strike. Doesn't that sound like conflict of interest? Why did the BART board hire Grace Crunican even though she had to leave her last job in Seattle or be fired for not preparing for a snow storm that crippled Seattle for over a week. Lastly why is she paid more than the president of the United States?
