Ferry Unions Work with Governor

The ferry unions have arrived at some tentative agreements with the governor to save approximately $10 million each year. Members still need to vote on the agreements, so nothing’s decided yet, but you can read more about the proposed cuts here and here, and in this press release from the governor’s office.

Saturday morning FCP meeting carpooling update: If anyone from Friday Harbor, Orcas, Shaw, or Lopez needs a ride from the ferry that arrives in Anacortes at 8:40 a.m., we have a driver who has room for three riders. She is willing to drop riders off at a breakfast place and pick them back up in time for the meeting.

If you need one of these spots, please email me today at SJBrooks@aol.com so I can connect you with this driver.
