Metro can't win these days. Their driver runs a red light, crashes into a taxi containing a parent of two children, killing him, so they fire the driver and....he gets reinstated by an arbitrator!

Another bus driver punches out McGruff the Crime Dog and gets fired and gets reinstated by an arbitrator!

So Metro's efforts to discipline miscreant drivers are rendered ineffective. The drivers understandably did not want to lose  their jobs and filed grievances under their union contracts, the cases went to neutral arbitration and back to work the drivers go. No appeal from the arbitration decisions is provided for so Metro is stuck.

My advice don't wear the McGruff Crime Dog costume in public or risk a beating.
