August 16, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
It could be a commuter nightmare in the San Francisco Bay Area Monday as 340,000 people may have to find an alternate way to get around.Union workers for BART, which is the city's rail system, are threatening to strike if an agreement isn't met.

The union says BART's management recently imposed new work terms, which cut worker's pay by seven percent.

The groups are meeting later Sunday to try and resolve the issue.
