Original post made on Jul 29, 2009

BART and its five unions have spent nearly one-third of the year wrangling about contracts, and with just a day left until a negotiation deadline, the two sides are stuck on points that have stalled the talks since Day 1.

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!

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!

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.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
