6:01 pm
still, both sides agreed to end the walkout and get the trains rolling and then go back to the bargaining table. union leaders admit they are rolling the dice. >> the public needs to use the trains. we needed to go back to work. we were willing to take a risk. >> reporter: does that make you lose a little ground when you don't have this over them? >> no, because we still have the right to strike. and if the deal falls through or 30 days bart feels like they bought time and don't take it seriously, we have that tool. >> it's a much more friendly atmosphere with the trains running so there's not that ticking clock as we approach a deadline. we now have 30 days and hopefully we can get that done. >> reporter: at least one returning worker showed his frustration. >> i wish we would have a contract. i wish we didn't come back the way we came. you know? we'll see what happens the next 30 days, huh? >> reporter: well, the truce officially ends on august 4th. but the chief negotiators as well as the labor secretary

6:03 pm
get back on board. >> listening to the train roll over my head is music to my ears right now. i could not be happier. >> reporter: but james gibson and others gathered here would have to wait a bit longer. the station agent didn't show. the gates stayed shut. regular riders missed bart and some missed work. >> i missed a few days this week. >> reporter: because of bart? >> because of bart. so i really hope they get what they want because it really affected a lot of commuters. >> i have missed a week's work. i had to leave at 6:30 to get to work by 11:30. so i thought i'm not doing that again. >> the commute from san pablo to san francisco is horrendous. i love bart right now.

6:06 pm
>> reporter: then the wind. everyone knows it blows here in san francisco. but if it goes over 20 knots or about 23 miles an hour, officials will postpone the race. how can it be too much wind for a sailboat? >> the issue with the sailboats it's a safety and equipment issue. the first day of racing is not until sunday. >> reporter: everyone is hoping that the drama can shift off the land and back on the water by then. the international committee has arrived in san francisco and may indeed take up this protest issue before sunday hoping to get luna rosa back on the watered making sunday a real race. in san francisco, don ford, kpix 5. >> and to put things in perspective, a regatta spokesman compared today's grounding of the ships because of high winds to that of canceling a racetrack practice because of rain. a positive sign today shows the job market is gaining strength. employers added 195,000 jobs in
