of where things stand this morning. frank? i'm cate caugiran live at walnut creek bart. riders here we have spoken to say they are happy it's still bittersweet because they have told us throughout the process we are the ones mo have been held hostage and -- we're the ones who have been held hostage and unfortunately for them the saga of strike or no strike continues. monday morning if no agreement is met there's still the possibility of another bart strike so riders do have to keep those alternative plans in place. our exclusive kpix 5 poll shows that many of those commuters will drive, likely clogging up the roads and only 11% will work from home. we spoke with a bart rider just moments ago and she says she is happy the strike was averted for now. >> hopefully the unions decide again that a strike just isn't the best of the bargaining tactics they can use right now because the support from the public for that sort of action is so incredibly low. >> reporter: she's not alone. pollsters also asked in order
5:33 am
to avoid a strike, should workers accept management's offer or vice versa? 54% say the unions should accept bart management's offer. i can tell you there's a lot of frustration from these riders and it really doesn't matter what side they're on. at this point they're just upset that they won't be able to go on throughout their day without bart. reporting live in walnut creek, cate caugiran, kpix 5. we'll continue to monitor the latest on the bart negotiations. we'll have continuing coverage of the strike threat on and, of course, right here on kpix 5. if the foster farms cleans up its act it can continue selling chicken from three california plants linked to the outbreak. 300 people have been sickened by it but the usda says it will step up inspections and that foster farms has made significant changes to address the problem. >> i think that every company including foster farms has an obligation to the public to do whatever they can to ensure our safety including pulling it off
