In-epta

Whoo-hoo! Septa, the South Eastern Philadelphia Transit Authority, avoided a strike on its’ railroads over the weekend.

Really?

President Obama put something into effect that a board, I guess kind of like mediators, that would hear both sides. Worse case scenario? Trains on strike when I am safely tucked in at Undisclosed Deux.

I find it incredible that my union went forever without any wage increases, and the nation-wide temperature toward contract negotiations seemed to have an ” let’s KEEP our jobs” motto. The folks on the train are so special.

Yup.They are so special that they’ll think nothing of raising train fares in a heartbeat for this contract.

…if only my salary went up to cover it.

I’ll admit it..

I was beat.

I fell asleep on half of the season premiere of Amish Mafia.

I woke up and my union had negotiated(tentatively)an 8 year contract with my employer.

Say WHAT?

Now I am awake and it is working on the wee small hours and if you think I can fall asleep now, well, think again.

My future is dependent on this contract and do you think for one stinking minute I can find anything about the retiree portion on-line? Nope? Google, union web site, local news station, local print media? Zip.

It’s going to be a long night. I guess it would help to put my glasses on to see the laptop better.I will wait…and search…..
