OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit and its two largest unions will be meeting again with a federal mediator over a key contract provision that has led to a lawsuit.

Representatives for the transit agency and the SEIU Local 1021 and ATU Local 1555 say they will meet on Thursday and Friday about a disputed Family Medical Leave Act provision that was stripped out of a contract the BART board approved last month.

The parties also will be meeting in Oakland with federal mediator Greg Lim who helped them reach a tentative agreement to end a contentious second strike in October.

The unions filed a lawsuit in Alameda County Superior Court last week claiming BART's board broke state law by approving the contract without the family medical leave provision.

BART says the provision was included in the contract by mistake.
