Ferry service across San Francisco Bay is being disrupted after Golden Gate Ferry workers represented by the Inlandboatmen's Union walked off the job on a one-day strike Saturday.

The union's regional director, Marina Secchitano, says the strike comes after nearly a year of negotiating between union officials and ferry representatives.

The two sides are at odds over workloads and other matters.

Because of the strike, Golden Gate ferries are not running between Larkspur, Sausalito and San Francisco. The strike does not affect ferries operated by the Blue & Gold Fleet and the Red and White Fleet.

Service is scheduled to resume Sunday, according to the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District. They will also be running extra service from Larkspur starting at 4 p.m. and running every 30 minutes until 8 p.m. Then at 10 p.m. they will provide return service every 30 minutes until midnight.

California Gov. Jerry Brown issued a statement Saturday evening appointing a board to investigate the strike, claiming it is creating a significant disruption to public service.
