6:00 pm
they are still miles apart. when talks began, bart was offering no raises plus asking workers to pay more into retirement and healthcare plans for a savings they estimated of about $140 million. in an effort to prevent the four-day strike in july, however, bart went from no raises to an offer of 8% raises over four years. now with a second strike looming, bart is offering 10% raises to the workers over four years with little change in the retirement and healthcare packages. total cost? $34million. in short, bart has gone from trying to save $140 million over four years to a package that could cost the system about $34 million. the unions meanwhile have barely moved at all from their call for a 21% wage hike over four years at a cost of about $86 million. >> i feel that we have moved too far too fast. >> reporter: not that the unions see it that way. >> they started way below where they should have in april. they started at minus 12%. you know, net. so if you look at that, they
6:01 pm
had a long way to go. so the movement they have made where they're at now they should have been months ago. >> reporter: at this point the big question is whether bart is willing to give even more. >> that's hard to say right now. i can't discuss what's talked about in closed session. but we are wanting to see more movement on the other side. >> reporter: right now, however, riders don't seem to care which side moves so long as there's not another strike. >> not looking forward to it, not at all. >> very, very discouraging. it was not fun, those four days. >> reporter: it's interesting to note, i was talking with some union leaders over the weekend and they are a little nervous too, because their rank- and-file having seen bart move so much says hey, why can't they move a little more in the final weeks? and that's why it's going to be tense. elizabeth? >> phil, say it was settled today, bart would still have to come up with $34 million. where's that money going to come from? is it going to come from
6:02 pm
riders? >> reporter: well, one way or the other they figure it's going to be about $10 million a year over the next four years. one, they are not going to have as many people cleaning the trains. they are not going to be able to afford it. they are not going to be do the improvements they had hoped to do. whether or not they will actually have to raise fares remains to be seen. that's the question the bart board has and there's a split in that group as well so you have splits within splits right now as we come into the final weeks. >> all right. phil, thank you. new tonight, the largest convention of the year under way in san francisco as we speak. mike sugerman reported. >> reporter: if you are looking to add to your built-in visualization to add to your consolidation tools, this is the place. if you are looking to get crosstown, this is not. there are 2 types of people who live in this world those who

6:06 pm
but here, not in san jose like the a's would like. a's management didn't want to talk. one said this is an old story and i was tired of regurgitating it but there are people in the community who have something to say about it. >> i don't want to go nowhere. i want it to stay here. i don't want everything -- i want everything to stay intact. then i'm just -- the sewers are backing up. >> i don't care. i don't care. i like my tailgating. >> they just use it as a ploy just to try to get out of their contract here in the coliseum. >> we have loyal fans here in oakland. give us something we'll be proud of and something new. >> reporter: that's the one thing that everyone agrees on. the a's and raiders need new stadiums. and they have been pushing for that long before the pipes began backing up. >> if that is an excuse to get a new stadium, we'll take it but i think there's bigger issues. >> reporter: the big debate now over a new stadium is where and how soon and it's not surprising that when sewage begins flowing, some people

6:14 pm
and she is still shaken after being robbed at gunpoint this morning. she says she has been a casual carpool rider for 25 years and it's always been safe. this morning, as the three suspects approached, some people in line were able to walk away. but several others were robbed at gunpoint. the suspects got away with bags and electronics. >> i just gave them my cell phone. they walked past me. they didn't take my backpack but they took everyone else's backpacks and bags. so i was very lucky in that i didn't lose everything. >> reporter: witnesses apparently gave good descriptions of the suspects though because about 2.5 hours later, the police were able to locate a suspect vehicle and they reported they detained three suspects. this victim said she couldn't describe the men. >> i was just looking at a gun. i was scared. >> reporter: the opd would not talk on camera today but in a news release said the investigation is continuing. they also said officers understand the amount of concern this causes area 2 which is north oakland and the
6:15 pm
oakland hills. a lot of people rely on casual carpool to commute to and from work and it's growing in popularity especially during the bart strike. and casual carpool really has an excellent reputation for safety for both the drivers and passengers. i spoke with another man who carpools. he arrived moments after the incident this morning. i asked him, are you going to take it tomorrow? he wasn't sure. he said he was going to sleep on it. he was going to watch the news and going to make his decision in the morning. but clearly, this has made many casual carpool users very uneasy. in oakland, ann notarangelo, kpix 5. >> a clothing retailer concerned about its look is paying up for how it treated two bay area women. kpix 5's cate caugiran on the lawsuit over religious head scarves. >> reporter: hani khan sat with ak look of satisfaction. for her this started out as a fun after school job but turned into a 3.5-year battle. >> it wasn't about the money. it was about the policy and i was fired because of the look
6:16 pm
policy and now they have had to change it and i'm happy. >> reporter: in 2010, khan was fired from her stockroom job at the hollister store inside the hillsdale mall for wearing a hijab, religious head scarf. parent company abercrombie & fitch said it violated their look policy and the head scarf hurt business. kahn said it hurt her more. >> if it could happen to me in the bay area it could han to anyone. i'm not anyone different. i felt like it was right for me to stand up and say something about it. >> reporter: now civil rights litigators are hoping this paves the way for changes in other companies and encourages others to step forward. >> we're here to applaud miss khan's courage for standing up and for hopefully amplifying the voices of other women suffering this way. >> reporter: the company claims they have changed and abercrombie & fitch's spokesman said today, quote, as part of our commitment to fair hiring practices and fostering a diverse workplace, we continually evaluate our existing policies. with respect to hijabs in

6:19 pm
night and early this morning. that drenching on saturday will likely be the only day all month we get rainfall but it rained so much, it will also be one of the wettest septembers in 24 years in much of the bay area. now the rainfall is up in the pacific northwest but that's key for us because there's another storm moving in up there. even though the rain will miss us, it won't miss us. then that moves out. a north to northeast wind is an offshore wind. we will be warming up as we hit the weekend. some of you near the water may hit 80 degrees on saturday and sunday. highs tomorrow cooler. concord 76. san jose 74. redwood city 73. napa 77. not cold, but it will certainly be cooler with some morning clouds. same story on wednesday. we start to warm back up on thursday. next weekend what a difference from this weekend. we'll have highs widespread in the 80s even near the bay. and we'll have an offshore wind and temperatures running well above normal. last weekend was the rain this

dimensional. >> it's alive. >> reporter: it's an oled, organic light-emitting diode tv. it's being touted as the next big thing in the world of consumer electronics. cnet's brian cooley says some of the hype is justified. >> it's a big breakthrough in picture quality. >> reporter: that's because the tv's individual pixels are the best yet at reproducing black on a screen. >> all the other colors look richer and sharper and have higher contrast and that is one of the holy grails of tv design. every pixel is producing its own light and its own color. >> reporter: and with samsung's version of the tv there's no more fighting over the remote. special glasses allow two people to watch two different shows at the same time. so what's not to love? the price starting at around $9,000. cooley says the curve which is supposed to envelope the viewer doesn't live up to its billing. >> our initial tests have found you don't notice much of a difference. >> reporter: still, many predict oled is here to stay. >> the next tv you buy will very likely be an oled.
6:41 pm
>> i would look at something like that for the future. >> reporter: and right now the future looks bright for oled. now, critics say the curve is basically a gimmick that doesn't have much impact unless you're watching a giant screen. but the oled technology is a game changer. and you should expect cheaper lighter and more energy- efficient models in the near future. on the consumerwatch, julie watts, kpix 5. >> most companies know a review on yelp can make or break their business. now there's a movement afoot to filter out the fakes. paying for reviews is a clear violation of yelp's policy. the new york attorney general is also making it clear it's against the law. 19 companies were agreed to pay $350,000 in penalties for either writing fake online reviews or paying others to do it for them. >> users are clearly relying on consumer reviews to find a great local business which is a tremendous incentive to game
