S.F. City Attorney Files Suit Over Rail Workers Calling in ‘Sick’ To Protest Pension Changes
On Wednesday, San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera filed a lawsuit against Municipal Transportation Agency workers after many rail workers called in "sick" for three straight days to protest a new contract that calls for them to pick up a 7.5% pension payment currently paid by their employer. However, MTA officials said that enough employees returned to work on Thursday to operate more than 90% of regular weekday services.
