Work rule changes for train operators
I am locking this thread. If the OP has something other than their own word to back this up they can start another thread. 10/12/2010
So I've heard that new rules are coming down allowing train operators to leave work when they have less than 15 minutes left on the clock and be paid for the full day. Does your job allow you to do this? As it is, train operators usually get back to their home yard with 1.5 hours left on the clock and are able to leave to run errands, get groceries, gas, go to the gym, ect. and then return to punch out at their off time. Does your job let you do this? I find this unbelievable. A train operator makes approx. $30.00/hr. 15 minutes is roughly $7.50. There are approximately 400 train operators, you do the math. In this economy BART is just giving away the money. If you find this outrageous, please contact your BART Board of Director for your area and express your concern. These are the people who scream for more money every 4 years.
