Ban BART Strikes
Petition Background (Preamble):
New York, Chicago, Massachusetts, Washington, and San Francisco restrict transit strikes. Due to the crippling impact a BART strike would have on the Bay Area and California economy, it is imperative that the State Legislature provide a backstop to the regional BART Board through a ban on BART strikes.
A BART strike will cripple our economy, hurt workers getting to their jobs, limit access to schools and health care, and damage our environment.
The impact of a BART strike will be felt across the state. It should not be in the hands of a regional BART board. We need a statewide law.
