Minutes before the Governor's previously issued 60-day cooling-off period was set to expire, a labor spokesperson announced late last night that negotiations with BART management will continue through the weekend. Nevertheless, a strike is still possible beginning Monday morning if a deal is not reached by midnight this Sunday.
"We are monitoring the negotiations between BART management and its labor groups. If a strike occurs next week, our librarians will gladly assist community residents who wish to telecommute from our main public library," stated Mayor Cassidy.
In the event of a transit strike next week, work space in the San Leandro Public Library located at 300 Estudillo Avenue will be available to the public during the following hours:
- Monday, Oct. 14: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Tuesday, Oct. 15: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Wednesday, Oct. 16: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Thursday, Oct. 17: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Friday, Oct. 18: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A limited number of power receptacles also will be available for commuters who need to charge their laptops or other mobile devices.
