BART official: Unions, BART $100M apart

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Bay Area Rapid Transit agency's attorney says BART and its unions are $100 million apart in contract talks.

BART Senior Attorney Vicki Nuetzel released the figure during her testimony before a three-member board appointed by Gov. Jerry Brown to investigate the contract dispute. Brown ordered the investigation on Sunday, with a strike that threatened to snarl Monday morning's commute looming.

The board was given seven days to submit its findings to the governor, who can then petition a court to call a 60-day cooling off period in the negotiations.

Union representatives are scheduled to testify later in the day.
