San Francisco Elimination of Pay Guarantees for Muni Operators, Proposition G (November 2010)
San Francisco superintendent Sean Elsbernd is a leading force behind the initiative.
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (MUNI), the agency that supervises the muni operators, projected a $16.9 million deficit through June 30, 2010, and a $53 million deficit for the fiscal year that began on July 1, 2010.
On July 1, 2010, all of San Francisco's muni workers received a 5.5% raise. They were the only city workers to receive a raise.
