abc7 news reporter sergio has the latest in the bart saga. >> reporter: after crunching the numbers the unions are responding to friday night's bart's board meeting. >> we are absolutely horrified with the district after everything that went on, a contentious bargaining situation, two strikes and two people killed, that they would take this action. >> reporter: section 4.8, family medical leave, gives bart employees six weeks of paid medical leave to take care of a sick family member. this is what sidelined the bart union contract. >> if we approve a bad deal that's potentially harmful for the fiscal well-being of the district, that's not a good option. >> the board says it will cost $44.2 million over the next four years, a figure the unions dispute. >> we're doing our own cost estimates that says it's about 1.2 each year for the four years. >> still, the board says section 4.8 was not supposed to be part

6:04 am
would say otherwise no. >> you can't just cancel something you already signed. if you already signed it, then that shows it went into effect. they should have had somebody overlooking it before anybody actually signed the contract. >> all the people we talked to agree that a bart strike would be the worst possible outcome. part of highway 116 is remaining closed right now after being shut down following an injury accident in sonoma county. the accident happened at 4:15 yesterday afternoon near adobe road west of petaluma. part of this is still shutdown. a driver crashed into a power play pole, bringing down the wires, causing several spot fires. fires were quickly put out and pg&e has been working throughout the night to repair that pole. there is no estimated time of reopening. new this morning, a close call for several young oakley teenagers who had to be treated for alcohol poisoning last night.
