Proposed work rule changes snag BART management, unions settlement

Original post made on Jul 29, 2009

Carlos Rivera, a representative of BART's largest union, Service Employees International Union Local 1021, comment regarding the desired work rules changes as an attempt that would make the train system less clean, safer and on time borders on the ludicrous!
Wake up, union members! You are being lead down the road of no return by somebody that will not be impacted regardless of how this turns out. He will still enjoy his union perks, while each union member will suffer the consequencies of this unreasonable position by the union .

Keep up the GOOD WORK UNIONS. You have to a legal right to negotiate the best possible contract for your members.

Anything less would be uncivilized!

VIVA UNIONS! VIVA AMERICA!!!

I would like to hear what the workers have to say about the $760 Million they claim can be saved. No press, no BART spokesman talk about this. Shame on the Unions for not getting this out for folks to see and hear.
