So now corrupt SEIU local 1021 wants to sue the BART Board of Directors over a clause that someone put in after the agreement was verbally agreed upon. How much paid time off do these clowns think they deserve? It's time to contact your local State legislators or Mark Desaulnier who is considering legislation to mandate arbitration and a no strike clause to keep thugs from holding the Bay Area hostage and negatively impacting our recovering economy. If you agree, don't just shake your head up and down, pick up your phone or email your state representative to put an end to this idiocy.

Mandatory arbitration ends up hurting the public as well. The union makes highly unreasonable demands, and the arbitrator just ends up meeting both sides half way. Plus, anything that Mark DeSaulnier favors has got to be bad for the public and great for the unions.
I would be in favor of developing an index for determining BART workers salaries. The index would be pegged to salaries/benefits for comparable jobs in the PRIVATE sector in industries where there is actually real bargaining going on.
