No deal reached yet in SF Bay Area transit talks

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - San Francisco Bay area transit officials are warning commuters to make alternate transit plans on the July Fourth holiday as rail workers are expected to continue their strike.

The Bay Area Rapid Transit agency on Wednesday said there was no indication that its two largest labor unions would return to work Thursday.

Negotiators and both sides were still working late into the evening Wednesday, but no deal has been announced.

Key issues involve salaries, pensions, health care and safety.

The strike is in its third day. Heavy morning rush-hour traffic lightened considerably by midday as the holiday approached.
