Union: L.A. Cut Corners With Utility Wages
Uh, huh. According to the Union guy, they should have been doing the work at night. So when he cut the same damn wire in THE DARK, it wouldn't be as bad. Right, because having no electricity in the evening is no problem at all.
The DWP employees are in negotiations for a new contract. Here are the figures from the article.
The City Council has yet to approve a proposal that would increase utility workers' pay between 16.25 percent and 30 percent over five years. D'Arcy said the union will hold a strike vote in the coming weeks.
So, tell me guys, when was the last time you got a 16.5% to 30% raise over 5 years. Let me just say that I never ever have in my entire working career.
I'm a big Union supporter. But this is bullshit.
