You have the R160s and some R143s to help with that issue.

The union did not want them running.  Period.  Since the R32's are supposed to be running Wed. July 1 as per newspaper reports, I suppose the union lost their "appeal".  If they went to an arbitrator IDK. Maybe the union just expressed their concerns and transit is blocking off the front of the cabs to the satisfaction of the union, IDK.  But management has a lot of power.  For example if the union does not like a new work program ( jobs/schedules the workers pick) they can complain all they want, but management has the final say.  The union has given up a lot in RTO for recent contracts.  "If you give this and that up you get your raise" .  RTO gives it up and the fruits go to every TWU represented worker in the company.   Train Operators and Conductors always vote "NO" on contracts.

There's a lot of politics involved with unions anyway.  But no matter how much the workers are disenfranchised with their union (any union) "A lousy union is better than no union".  You young ones will realize this someday.  My advice: never work for a company that has a lot of workers with no union.  I did before transit.  A bank, and the company treated us like sh**, worse than TWU would ever do.  That's the problem with Amazon.  All the company needs to hear or see some guy is trying to organize one, he'll get fired with some trumped up BS charges.   But I'm getting too far off topic......

Thank you. I really hope that Dems, if they take the Senate and Biden wins undoes one of the most damaging pieces of legislation in American history, the Taft-Hartley Act of 1946, which allowed states to pass right-to-work laws.

You guys do know that the R32s are going to be rush hour only right?

How exactly will that work? alot of the sets are used all day. Only 6 are peak only and they may need more than that.

That's a tall order for the party.

As long as the inspectors keep "For Want of a Nail" in mind, we should be okay once the R179s return.

Are you a/k/a Richard Lewis, who has not posted here for awhile?

Your posts are very hard to understand.

Only 3-4? Are there enough R160s to do the rest. To my knowledge they only have 11 R160s assigned to the (J) which would leave 7 more trains needed for full service.

They’re still managing to use the R143’s.

Any updates on the R179s?

Idk why you keep asking for these "updates" when you get them as soon as it's available from a reliable source.

 

Without asking.

My comment was meant for Mr. Happy.

Unless, you are Mr. Happy and this is a second account you made🤔🤔🤔. Funny thing is this account I'm replying to is a month old too.

Sometimes people have insider information that isnt disclosed to the public. If that isnt the case here, just say so. For future reference, a yes or no would do.

 

On a separate note, I have had this account for at least a year, I dont know who that Rigojefte guy is who keeps responding in a slurred and incoherent fashion.

Let's not get impatient. This long wait is actually a good thing because it will ensure a strong and triumphant return of the r179's. It's a matter of when, but they will be back, no question about it.

Just saying if it wasn't you there was no need to reply at all to make it more believable. Anyways, no need to focus on this anymore. Carry on.

I wonder what percentage of all the posts in the 383 pages of this thread are just people being impatient waiting for updates.
