exactly why we need unions
the boston globe is reporting that the transportation authority is going to save a little money this year... by taking it out of the pocket of non-union employees.
one way of saving money?
Ending a policy that gave employees one floating holiday a year, a savings of $16,000.
i mean, talk about cheap.
considering that his predecessor made $223,000 a year, it seems he could chip in a little bit of savings in order that these workers could at least keep his holiday.
and yes, this is the transit authority overseeing the $15 billion dollar Big Dig project.
that, yes, is still plagued with problems.
