Where's the Contract 

Have you seen it? I haven't. It was voted on a looong time ago. But there are still no printed copies.


If the union can't afford to supply us with printed copies, they can at least post it on their web site. That way members can read it and know when it is being violated. That way they can cite from it when filing grievances.

What about it, Tom? You haven't updated the union web site in almost a year and a half. Here's an opportunity to do something useful with our web site.

Gonzales' Head Still Buried in BART 

MercuryNews.com | 08/02/2004 | Support dwindles for BART to S.J.

While other board members have begun to see reason, Ron Gonzales still insists on keeping his head firmly planted up his BART.
San Jose's mayor doesn't want to look at it...

But an idea that's become the proverbial third rail of local transportation politics -- shortening a planned BART line so that it doesn't reach downtown San Jose -- is gaining momentum as transportation leaders face the reality that they can't afford to pay for everything they promised voters four years ago.

Maybe this transit system can be salvaged yet.
