* At the request of Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, a Superior Court on Wednesday issued a 60-day injunction against a strike of AC Transit workers in Northern California. * The injunction comes immediately after unions called off a four-day strike of Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) workers on Monday night. * The Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU), which claims to represent around 1,600 bus workers in AC Transit as well as many of the BART workers, raised no objection to the injunction, saying that Brown was entitled to seek it. * The threat of a bus strike so soon after the BART strike has caused a furor among politicians and the media.
