San Francisco Muni Transit ‘Sickout' in 3rd Day

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco transit officials say the city's famed cable cars remain idle on the third day of a worker sickout, but light-rail trains and buses are returning to their regular routes.
Fewer workers called in sick on Wednesday and the system was operating at about 70 percent of its normal service, up from 50 percent a day earlier and 33 percent on Monday.

Workers and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency are at odds over a new contract. Workers rejected a contract proposal on Friday that union officials said would have resulted in a pay cut.

The union says it has nothing to do with the sickout.
