BART Strike: Negotiations Pause While BART Negotiator Goes on Vacation

"No meetings at all will happen from July 22 to July 29, when BART's $399,000 chief negotiator -- transit attorney Tom Hock, who labor leaders view as a union buster -- goes on vacation."

No reason to meet if Unions are still demanding an unrealistic 20% + raises...Give the agents the safety(bulletproof glass etc) but sorry, no raises. Public is not necessarily backing the Management, but in this fight they are the lesser of 2 evils.
