BART strike blocked but contract negotiations remain stalled

Original post made on Aug 12, 2013

BART negotiations between management and two worker unions ended Sunday evening with little progress, but trains will be running Monday after a San Francisco Superior Court judge ordered a 60-day cooling off period. If no agreement is reached before then, workers will then have the right to strike at any time.

If you want to find a union that seeks to act like manipulative thugs look no further than the SEIU. They represent the overpaid, under educated folks that want to hold the entire Bay Area hostage and negatively impact our barely recovering economy. 10% pay raise over 4 years just wasn't enough for them. Unskilled workers getting paid more than teachers? What is wrong with this picture?
