BART Swears It's Not Responsible for Transit Stickers Calling Unions "Brats"

If you're a regular BART passenger you might have noticed these somewhat new stickers appearing on train cars in the last few weeks which, without naming names, refer to the unions as "brats."

While the obvious culprits are BART managers, Rick Rice, spokesman for the transit agency told us that in no way was the BART District involved in the childish and inaccurate sticker art.

"We have been seeing and removing those stickers for several weeks," Rice told us via email. "The District has no idea of the source -- it certainly isn't anything we have done or approve of."

That's good news. It would be somewhat distressing to find out that amid a serious dispute over money, the district spent money on a name-calling campaign.

On another note, the two sides were back at it today, and, no, things are not going well.
