The latest: Gov. Jerry Brown has stepped into the deadlocked talks between BART and its two biggest unions and appointed a three-member board of inquiry to examine the unresolved issues in the labor dispute.
Brown's move, made at the request of BART officials, means that workers will not go on strike tonight and trains will roll as usual Monday morning.
Striking BART workers will be back on the job Friday, and service is scheduled to begin at 3pm. But the current labor contract has only been extended for 30 days -- and the two sides are still far apart.
