Unionman, I thought we were friends or at least on the same side on most issues. That is why, I hate to take your arguments apart piece by piece showing how wrong you are.
Sorry in advance!
Just like the assumption made about the gravel ramp leading to the pine street foot bridge - which is currently concrete -
The "gravel part" I was joking about ... the reason I took the time to describe it as "squishy" and imagined wheelchairs, bicycles, skateboards and shopping carts using it. It was actually, as we all guessed, a base for the PAVING they did yesterday!
It's asphalt, not concrete! But I knew all along that the loose gravel was just a base ... but I was poking fun at it, not being serious!
who said this guy was working or punched in? He was picked up at his place of work. Did he show up drunk on his day off to get his paycheck and one of his friends prefented him from leaving? Does he happen to be friends with one of his co-workers and went to see that person for advice on his failing relationship? Everyone seems to be assuming he was at work, yet there is NO EVIDENCE in this article to back that assumption up.
First off, the info that the man was arrested at his "place of work" came from the Bradford Era. Why their reporter didn't ask if the guy was officially working or not was on them! So question the Era if that matters to you.
BUT does it really matter if he was on the clock or not?
The STATE POLICE said he was there and he was, in their opinion, a danger to himself, others, and the building. Would you not fire him for that alone whether he was clocked in or not?
Until proven otherwise, I think the union and the employer deserve an apology.
I think THE UNION AND THE EMPLOYER OWE THE PEOPLE OF BRADFORD AN EXPLANATION AS TO WHY WE THE PEOPLE OF BRADFORD HAVE GOTTEN SUCH CRAPPY SERVICE FOR THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS!
I'm waiting for that apology!
