deal was a place but turns out a deal might not be in place all because bart management is now saying it's a provision in the contract that we agree to that we didn't to me and for it to be there. it could have been a clerical error or something they agreed upon early in the negotiations and forgot to take about three aken the buyer's remorse. here's the provision for its rights now you get to six weeks of family medical time. that means your child is born an illness and the family. you get those days the to have to catch them and vacation days you're sick days or even on paydays. the new provision asked for all of those six weeks to be paid. a kickoffs bart millions of dollars. bart is investigating how did that get into place for it the bart board of directors will have the final say but they aren't very happy about this. also not very happy is the bart riders three had a chance to talk to them and here's what they have to say >>: i thought it was a deal.
that's what i was told and bart was going back in service and everything was good to go and of course we see you all coming in at were like what's going on. and that's usually how it goes and dime and a coast guard so we take bart every day. it's how we get to work and so it's pretty end of the when these things happen. it >>will: it's so funny. i was here for so long trend of our negotiations that when they saw me this morning they were like a great to what's going on. i'm here for a reason and that's because the story continues to give us drama. bart board of directors will meet today behind closed doors to go over the details and then they'll have a final vote next week if they say yes this is done. if they say no to be back to the bargaining table and the unions already fired up that it's even got to this point. they're saying a deal as a deal. back to you james. >>james: well we will see what they decide. thanks for the update. >>darya:it is almost ready for it's debut. we are

bart millions of dollars and that's why bart management is kind of a back pedaling. they say they don't know how they got in there. we had a chance to talk to bart riders this morning. does it matter where you fall on this. they're still sought stuck in the middle of all of this. >>: i think the union is completely right. i think they've made a contract and they should stand by its. >>: even if in my cost millions of dollars? it could be a clerical error. >>: they signed the contract. is it agreed to that contract. >>will: bart hired a professional negotiator. he came into the negotiating room with all these credentials. they paid him a few hundreds of thousands of dollars and people are wondering why he didn't catch it so that's the rub of there. bart board of directors will meet behind closed doors today to go over the details. if they
