“The Larkspur Ferry Terminal was blocked by a picket line of ironworkers, teamsters, electricians, boatmen and women, ferry captains, laborers, and mechanics. These workers, who run and maintain the Golden Gate Bridge, Buses and Ferries were protesting to defend their health benefits and conditions.
More than 380 union workers employed by the Golden Gate Bridge District have been negotiating more than one year without reaching an agreement, even though management admits the unions have granted monetary and benefit concessions that exceed the District’s demands. What is the holdup? Management, led by General Manager Denis Mulligan, is now on a campaign to force a form of health benefit premium sharing that will penalize employees with families. The workers are fighting to keep their health care affordable for families. Management is also demanding cuts in current retirees’ vested health care benefits.”
