Muni workers: crybaby jerks

From the Chronicle today:
The sickout comes amid displeasure over a proposed labor agreement that was the subject of a vote Friday by Muni operators. The outcome of the vote wasn't immediately known, but officials with Transport Workers Union Local 250-A had voiced concerns about the Municipal Transportation Agency's offer. Under the proposal, the agency says, Muni workers would get 11.25 percent raises over two years, but they would pick up a 7.5 percent pension payment now paid by the MTA. The contract would push operator pay to about $32 an hour July 1, making Muni drivers the second-highest-paid transit workers in the country, according to the MTA.
$32 an hour isn't enough? And they have to pay for their pension plan? A big fucking Boo and a big fucking Hoo!
From the Transport Workers Union website: "We are all united in our commitment to make life better for ourselves, our families, and all working people." Except for the city's working people who have to rely on Muni to get to work, most of whom don't make anywhere near $32 an hour.
The city should fine the union for this action, which was tacitly encouraged by the president of the union.
|$32 an hour!|
