Why are BART's unions different than others?
Original post made by Joe on Aug 31, 2013
Both the county and union agreed that agreement was reached because "both parties ultimately believed in one fundamental principle: Quality public services must come first."
In contrast, BART unions are asking for double the raise, 20%, over three years. That's 6.6% a year vs. the 2.5% the SEIU agreed to. Also, the BART unions are demanding no increase for their cost of any benefits.
Why are the BART unions different? Or, more precisely, why do the BART unions think they're different?
