BART workers have announced they will go on strike beginning Friday morning, after tens of hours of late-night negotiations with high level mediators and a week past their strike deadline. We talk about the breakdown in labor negotiations and how commuters are faring.

Host: Dave Iverson

Guests:

  • Alicia Trost, spokesperson for BART
  • Dan Brekke, blogger and online editor for KQED News
