  • Can we go ahead and call the “sickout” what it is: an illegal strike?

    Unfortunately Wiener is too late to stop a box being installed on the north side of 15th St, west of Dolores. Right smack in the middle of the damn sidewalk. Totally disgusting.

    Could the city turn around and file a class-action lawsuit against the muni employees for the lost wages of the citizens of San Francisco? Mama always said that turnabout is fair play.

    Is that what all the construction mess is about? That is disgusting indeed.

    As of yet, we have not seen any displays of leadership from the mayor, The head of the SFMTA, the supervisors, or the SF Transit Riders Union in regards to the Muni drivers ‘ petulant and illegal strike. Maybe some good and tough negotiations are taking place out of the public eye? But so far, not a single public figure has called the drivers out or promised consequences. Mostly I am disgusted by our mayor, Lee, who proves yet again he is more interested in remaining popular with power brokers, including public employee unions, than in showing leadership.

    The boxes can’t be stopped by the City according to Sup. Weiner. He is working on an ordinance to regulate them, however.
