DrewCurtisJr: efgeise: Yeah, I'm pro-union as a whole, but I'll be pissed off if the union starts actively fighting attempts to fire her, especially since it's the union's job to make sure she is not being overworked.Some unions operate kind of like lawyers representing their clients. They are obligated to represent their members in the employee in the discipline process.
Nutsac_Jim: A city council, working for the best interest of the city, agreed to this?
efgeise: Which I do agree with, to a point. It's just borderline unethical to defend someone who confessed to falling asleep whilst operating a fast moving vehicle which ended up derailing and injuring people.
efgeise: Plus, the union isn't apparently doing its job correctly, if the drivers are being so overworked that they are prone to fall asleep like that.
Russ1642: Driving a train is about as boring as sitting and trying to be actively involved in watching a windows loading bar. At least when you're driving a car you have to steer. On a train you just fraking sit there and do nothing when you're at cruising speed.
TheOther: That's what the COCAINE is for, idjit!/humming tune
