How could you tell a difference?

Members of the MBTA Carmen's Union are threatening a work slowdown in the coming weeks if there is no progress in coming up with cash to pay for an arbitrator's award.

And how would we know this is happening?

The grievance appears legitimate in that union members have been waiting for a legally adjudicated settlement of a pay raise and back wages.

But annoying the heck out of the people who pay the fares and whose business provides the jobs seems like a bad way to win sympathy and make your point.

Besides, Smilin' Dan doesn't ride the system so how would he know?
