    Transit advocates usually stay away from union fights, even though sometimes very legitimate arguments can be presented for siding with transit management in a zero-sum game (riders vs. workers). But the inverse doesn’t appear to be true (case in point SEIU), and I think the disconnect will lead to an increased hostility to unions, even from otherwise friendly places.

    Claire Zvanski seems hellbent on weakening and isolating her union, I can’t imagine why. The thought that a Union would line up with the Libertarian Party really stretches belief.
