Letter: Cameras should be watching UTA board
First Published May 16 2014 04:25 pm • Last Updated May 16 2014 04:25 pm

The only place cameras would be justified at the Utah Transit Authority would be in the board room, where the good old boy network is alive and thriving. ("Utah train, bus rider alert: UTA is watching," Tribune, May 16.)

Does the public know, or even care, that the drivers are pushed daily to perform their duties in an unsafe manner? Does the public know that UTA has a problem hiring and retaining drivers because of the UTA bureaucracy and seeming lack of concern for the drivers?

Does the public know that rather than give the drivers a timely raise, management drags its feet until arbitration steps in?

UTA Executive Director Michael Allegra has been talking to the wrong drivers if he thinks Big Brother is accepted by the drivers. Oh, please give me another bonus for doing such a wonderful job for my friends.
