On the news this evening, BART is proactively training managers to operate trains so that limited service can be offered in the event of a strike. Some BART management employees are already certified as train operators; the training now in progress will increase that number.
Two trains were taken to an offsite facility for the employee training. BART unions limit training of non-union personnel to offsite trains. The limitations on training are a good example of the self-serving nature of the BART unions.
