Today, rumour has it, more than 300 MUNI Drivers called in sick. Is SEIU part of the spelling bee?
This was a total calamity, a particularly nasty act–just the kind of thing inept middle managers do to get even with people they don’t like. Doing harm, and this was harm, does no one any good. All it did was make people very angry & even more frustrated with MUNI than ever before.
In a moribund system like this, all that’s missing is the embalming fluid.
Come to think of it, this was a huge public relations miss for all those white, sleek, techie buses that have multiplied like gerbils during the last couple of years. Had they been more Pubic Relations savvy, their managers would have jumped up, called in all their drivers, and given the transit-abandoned people a gratis lift. It would have made good business sense.
