Years ago any DOT sign such as a stop sign, no parking, etc. use to have the words
"Department of Transportation" printed on the bottom of the sign. I don't know if that are you still in affect.

Before we start with everyone under the same contract (new & old contract), how about we start with ALL 1181 properties being under one contract???
For many reasons but one of the main reasons is for unity & bargaining power!
It's unbelievable that some brothers & sisters that work for a company that are 1181 could possibly go on Strike for cause and that other members that work for a different 1181 company can not honor the strike! And if they do, could face immediate legal termination!
More power in numbers! Besides it's just unheard of that different properties have different contracts!

If they have 1/2 the buses it means they don't need the odd/even days.
If everyone in SI were to go back on the same day then there would be 400 buses looking for fuel. In the Bronx there would only be 200 buses. At 5 to 10 minutes a bus that's a big difference.
And I know who Bobby is. I was making a joke because in my opinion the "Defect Man's" idea will not work. And it was already proven today. I heard on day one that the computer was down and drivers were filling out defect slips.

Not sure but I think the Bronx has 1/2 the amount of buses. So that makes a difference. Also, are you quoting Bobby the "Defect Man"

Training email came at exactly 5:00am and yes there were drivers at the yard. I myself was done with both my am & pm dry runs by 7:30am.
BTW Last week when I picked I took the time to move my bus where I would be able to get to it yesterday morning without a problem.

Obviously yesterday was different bc it was dry runs and with the exception of a few drivers that actually worked most of us came in anywhere from 5am to 2pm and I don't think Bobby & Brian were in the yard.
Starting tomorrow everyone for the most part will be starting around the same time and the two of them will be working the yard. Let's have a little patience. Just think what things could be like if we had real problems like other people.

Did anyone else get paid their unemployment but get short changed?
Instead of getting my usual $504
I got $126.
When I looked up my payment history
Effective days said 1 instead of 4.

I recall years ago (specifically about Pioneer) that it was said that an employer with over a certain number of employees was to provide parking and the way Pioneer got out of it was that Pioneer stated that it's employees all had different start times and end times. It was presented that all 400 employees don't all come in and go home at the same time and that's why Neil doesn't have to provide parking.
Wether this is true or just a BS rumor that someone started I don't know but I do remember someone saying it.
I would think that Eddie and/or Ernie would know if it's true.

If we lost Johnson St. and if there are new no parking signs on AK road then someone should tell Neil to make a phone call to have those signs removed. I'm sure that he has enough influence to get it done. After all he has enough influence that he doesn't have to provide us parking in a private lot which by law I believe with the number of employees he has that he is supposed to. Apparently he found a loophole which obviously the city politicians or DOT executives know is Bull Shit.
I don't understand why but ever since the last Strike it seems (at least to me) that the mechanics instead of being seen as Local 1181 brothers that they are considered more like management at Pioneer. And don't get me wrong I'm not talking about them in a bad way. I personally get along with all of them. It just strikes me as odd. Does anyone else see this or is it my imagination?

My last post as stated is intended for "Drivers" only. I'm sure there are attendants under the NEW contract that will be entitled to partial unemployment.
