Governor Jerry Brown today, Wednesday, blocked a threatened AC Transit strike for up to seven days by appointing an investigative board to examine the labor-management contract dispute.
The union representing bus drivers and other AC Transit workers said it might strike at 12:01 a.m. Thursday.
The AC Transit board had asked Brown for a 60-day cooling-off period. A spokesman for the Governor, Evan Westrup, said Brown would consider a 60-day cooling-off period after the 3-person investigative board completes its findings.
