    Wow! As if the "service" wasn't already bad enough, another government employee group is now going to be protected by a union. So much for my hope that the success at SFO would catch on. ::heavy sigh::

    According to some inside sources that I have, the contract rates employees more based on on-the-job performance than certification tests and longevity, which I think is a good thing. We'll see how this goes in the long run though...

    Oh that will help. Maybe the passengers should unionize so we can file grievances against them.

    Other sites seem to indicate that a contract seemed to be more of what the members would be allowed to dress and such more than anything else. Referred to as a "tattoo and ties" contract.

    wow... if they go on strike or take some other type of job action, that could really create some instant chaos.....but then again, as things are getting more mechanized, they can easily be replaced...

    If they were to go on strike or make any sort of job action that would be a very quick way to make the union disappear, it is illegal for government employees to partake in anything of that sort against the government.

    I'm not disagreeing that it's the law. There are, however, several cases of public unions striking anyway. Ronald Reagan not being president anymore and all....
