Muni Drivers Show Up To Work Despite 'Sickout' Rumor

SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) - A "sickout" by San Francisco Municipal Railway operators that was rumored to be in the works Tuesday did not happen.

"We're at normal service right now," Muni spokesman Paul Rose said Tuesday morning.

Rose said it appears only three drivers called in sick Tuesday morning.

An anonymous flyer had been circulated urging Muni drivers to call in sick Tuesday through Friday. It contained a list of complaints about new Muni sick leave policies, service changes and parking fees.

Officials with the Transport Workers Union Local 250-A, which represents the operators, said the union did not sanction the flyer.

Rose said unexcused absences are cause for disciplinary action, including possible dismissal.
