Golden Gate ferry service between San Francisco and Larkspur and Sausalito has been shut down for the morning commute because of a one-day labor strike.

Marin-ites trying to get into the city can still use the Golden Gate Bridge or bus service.

People are picketing in front of all three terminals this morning in support of the ferry workers who have in been in contract negotiations for over a year.

Their union called for the one-day strike because they feel the district has not been negotiating in good faith.

Both sides are split over rising health care costs, wages and pensions for new hires. Ferry service will resume out of Sausalito at 1:55 pm and out of Larkspur at 2:15 pm.

Plans by Occupy protestors to shut down the bridge itself have been called off.
