Add comment on:Bay Area transit unions move to push through concessions contract
World Socialist Website (Repost)
* One day after calling off a four-day strike by Bay Area California transit workers, the unions involved have begun holding meetings as part of an effort to push through a concessions agreement reached with management. * The agreement accepts the entire framework demanded by management, including cuts to health care and pensions and changes to work rules to benefit management. * Workers...asked the union executive board why they had called off the strike prior to workers voting on the contract. * Throughout the process, the unions have sought to isolate the workers and prevent any struggle from developing into a political struggle against the Democratic Party and the capitalist system. * Democratic and Republican politicians have both called for legislation to make strikes by transit workers illegal.
