On August 1, more than 1,200 unionists from four unions - ATU, AFSCME, ILWU and SEIU - along with community supporters organized a United Labor Rally to defend BART workers and their communities as a BART strike approaches.
Following the rally at Frank Ogawa (Oscar Grant) Plaza, participants marched to BART headquarters where a spontaneous action started up in front of the main entrance.
A strike is scheduled for midnight on Monday, August 5th. ATU Local 1555 has called for a mass labor/community mobilization at 14th and Broadway in Oakland at 5pm that same day.
