BART negotiation numbers to think about

Original post made by Joe, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Sep 30, 2013

Ten days before the strike deadline, BART management and the BART unions are $112 million apart. There are 2,375 union members represented by Union locals 1021 and 1555.

This works out to $47,158 per Union employee. Per year, it's $15,719.

That's a lot per employee.

What exactly do mean by "a lot" in our present economy? Please break it down - DETAILS PLEASE...DETAILS!

Fortunately, "Joe" does not make any important decisions re: Union members and their benefits.

I'm very uncomfortable knowing that so very few IF ANY BART MANAGERS have earned a Ph.D. from a reputable American University.

It's simply unacceptable that any BART management earn more than $70,000 having only earned a Masters level degree from an online university. It's so funny that perhaps some managers have attended online and questionable academic universities...tee hee...somebody will need to tease out what/who in management is playing sneaky pants!

Incidentally, HOW MUCH CASH MONEY HAS BEEN "EARNED" BY BART MANAGEMENT IN OVERTIME PAY? just axing...JUST LIKE ALICE IN WONDERLAND, I'M GETTING CURIOUSER 'N CURIOUSER...TEE HEE...

forever yours...anony

I would like to suggest that anybody that has not earned a Ph.D. from a major American university can only be thought of as having attained "honorable mediocrity".

i rest my case...
