Governor's trip slaps Taku workers in face

Letters to the editor

Posted: Thursday, September 23, 2004

I hope the governor enjoyed the trip he took on board the state ferry Taku, the same vessel his administration is laying up on Tuesday the 26th and looking to sell. I am sure that the crew was very professional to the governor and his people. It just seems like a slap in the face for those crew members who may be losing jobs or may not have enough seniority to work.

Some will claim that no one will lose their jobs. Well of course not: People will quit because they need to work elsewhere. Close to 90 jobs will be affected by losing the Taku. It is hard to put them somewhere else in the fleet, especially when there will only be limited ferries working this winter.
