Walter-

I can't help but agree with what you're saying for the most part. However, I think it would be better if the whole lot was simply thrown to an independant arbitrator at the very beginning. Have both sides flesh out their sides and then throw it to a tribunal. Done deal. It would save a lot of time and anguish.

Good idea. Independent? Is there such a thing?

Walter, I agree with you. It would be nice to have some transparency - SEIU is embarrassed on these boards and the city is silent. Neither position is acceptable.

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
