SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - It's the fourth day of a walkout by San Francisco area commuter rail workers -- but commuters have been spared another morning of crammed buses and bumper-to-bumper traffic, thanks to the Fourth of July holiday.
No agreement was announced as talks between Bay Area Rapid Transit officials and the agency's two largest labor unions went late into the night. The San Francisco Chronicle says the talks adjourned, but that they will resume later today.
Both sides had indicated progress was made during an overnight negotiating session a day earlier.
Key issues in the labor dispute include salaries, pensions, health care and safety.
BART, the nation's fifth-largest rail system, serves more than 400,000 commuters each weekday.
