just very slight delays. it's about a half hour ago but the back-ups are in a couple of spots and actually smaller. right around the pay date. just cleared it but just caused a slight back-up there, otherwise looking great into san francisco. and only the bay bridge, pretty quiet as well. camera tries to get it and the live look switching. everything looks good all the way down to emoryville and westbound 44. if you try to head out. a couple earlier including one in san jose northbound 101 approaching and that accident is off of the reasoned shoulder. it's sluggish in san jose and better than we usually see and better than usual across the san mateo bridge with drive time 10 minutes. i'm randy sue. >> looks good. mostly clear skies. a little chilly in spots early on but otherwise, a whole lot
of sunshine coming your way. great start to the week. high pressure overhead. look at those offshore winds. clear over san francisco right now. the temperatures, a little chilly in some of the valleys. in concord, 40 in santa rosa and 50 degrees. 52 in san francisco. as we head through the day though, we see plenty of sunshine and warm temperatures all the way to the coastline. numbers near 70 degrees even out of the beaches and looks like a gorgeous week ahead, at least for the next few days before things begin to cool down. courtesy of high pressure building in overhead with the offshore winds and the wind, not too strong to raise fire danger and make for a nice day. traveling shouldn't be a problem today and if you are headed around the country, a couple of interesting spots. the thunderstorms in houston could cause some flames. and a rain/snow mix in denver. 70s inside the bay today and upper 60s. low 70s towards the coastline and low 80s inland and next couple of days will be warmer
and we cool down on thursday and friday and a few more clouds in towards the weekend. time for your school cam today from collins elementary school. a dip to your morning. chilly. might want to grab a jacket if you head out the door, but lunchtime recess at 74 degrees. 77 and warm when you get out of school at 77. nominate your school. go to kpix.com/schoolcast. families love to put it on the air. back to you. >> lawrence, thanks. 6:46. down to the wire for bart unions hopefully to come up with an agreement today. >> california's examiner is joining us to see how union agreements and other large cities panned down to relearn something here. if you look at other cities like boston, chicago, and new york. transit employees aren't allowed to strike. in chicago, they can only strike under the circumstances, but legally prohibited. let's look at what they can negotiate without having to
strike. you look at the operators rate to pay per hour from the chronicle. makes about $30 an hour. not the highest but within striking distance. now if you look at recent contracts, each of the transit unions have been able to negotiate. you can see that the most recent proposal from bart management is 12% over four years, about 3% a year. the union wants 3% over three years. chicago only has 2.5% over four years and new york, they haven't had a contract in a while but about 3% and boston about 2%. so if you look at the most recent proposals by bart management, it's right there. comparable to nonstriking cities. benefits pensionwise and healthcarewise, pays 0% and healthcare is $92 a month regardless of how many people are being covered. other cities like chicago, new york, and boston, all contribute something to their pension. in addition, their healthcare
costs vary based on the number of dependents that are actually being covered and so the most recent proposal by bart management, perhaps contributing 4% of their wages to their pension and to contribute about $100 a month to their healthcare seems to be pretty well in line with other cities against nonstriking cities that are able to establish. >> so a bit of a wake-up call perhaps and i'm sure management hoed the numbers. >> absolutely. statistics anytime for the negotiations and you look at some for the hospital and other hospitals in the area. and if it's a transit system like this, you look at the transit systems. >> what do politicians do to help? >> they're nosing around again. as you can see, not much at this point. even if they were to pass a law banning strikes for example, they wouldn't be able to do it within the first couple of weeks. so it would take an emergency
session in san francisco. they need to buckle things up. one of the most promising things i've seen come out of the negotiations is the fact they kicked the politicians out. you can't pretend to pay. when politicians get in there, historically, they don't do such a good job. jerry brown attempted to get involved in negotiations and was absolutely excluded. we see they don't do very much to help and they can actually hurt negotiations. >> in a paragraph, will they get it done? >> we see such an acceleration and this is the final offer. one more day and seems again like the debt ceiling. everyone sen gauging in this and i think it makes more difficult to get an agreement. less hopeful than i was this weekend. >> happy monday. >> yeah, happy monday. >> all right, well, you can find more on melissa at kpix.com/morning. thank you, melissa. time now for a look at what's up later on cbs this morning.
>> we do that with charlie rose live in new york with what's on the big show. good morning. >> hey, good morning. three days from the debt ceiling deadline and the default and still no deal. we'll see the world's largest manager what this means for your pension and 401(k). plus, a top neurologist on finding relief for millions who suffer from chronic headaches and gunmen conspiracy. the upcoming book reveals new evidence about the fascination of president kennedy. the news is back in the morning and we'll see you at 7:00. >> thank you, we'll watch in just about ten minutes. >> time now though is 6:50. national parks across the country closed due to government shutdown but a few open their gates this morning in honor of columbus day. what it makes to get these national landmarks running again coming up. >> i'm mark kelly in walnut

building where the talks between bart management and the union begin within a few hours. good news, no strike today. bad news, there could be one tomorrow. now, bart management and its union burned the midnight oil into the night trying to final as i what feels like a never ending saga. the latest offer would be the best and final offer. management claims the offer is $7 million more than friday. it's a 3% raise each year before the contract and fortunately, that's something that took a turn for the worse. the offer was not good enough and was worse than one in the past. now take it or leave it offer put a halt to negotiations and last night's talk and latest deal won't be on the table. it won't give the unions two weeks before they completely remove it off the table. reporting live in oakland, kpix 5. >> i'm mark kelly live in walnut creek. there's three big players.
got the politicians, workers and the riders and the riders here. some say they're very frustrated. stood outside of the negotiations central. and bart riders are the ones hurt in the end and this is insanity. saying legislators should pass the law banning. this is politically impossible in san francisco and he doesn't see it happening. the legislature would actually go through wit. >> workers, here's something they do agree on. they agree they do not like the idea of a no-strike clause. live in walnut creek, mark kelly, kpix 5. people just staying home.
