Union strike to shut down morning Golden Gate ferry service Tuesday

By Mark Prado, MercuryNews.com

Morning ferry service in Marin will shut down Tuesday as part of a strike action, union officials announced Monday.

Golden Gate Bridge union workers and organizers have voiced their displeasure over what they say is an effort to have them pay more for medical benefits. The bridge district is wrestling with a five-year $87 million deficit and is looking at ways to cut costs.

Now workers say they will strike Tuesday, leaving passengers who ride ferries from Larkspur and Sausalito with no boats in operation.
