Union goon driving the Amtrak train

Post by Pete » Tue Dec 19, 2017 8:35 am

50 mph over the speed limit. People die

"Because of the fragmentation of railroad unions by job, as of 2009 Amtrak has 14 separate unions to negotiate with. Plus, it has 24 separate contracts with those unions. This makes it difficult to make substantial changes, in contrast to a situation where one union negotiates with one employer." Wiki

And this kind of stupidity killed all those people. How long must we tolerate this "Liberal" approach to negotiating contracts?

It's too soon after the tragedy to politicize it.
