Muni operators rumored to have sick out

Muni delays are possible in San Francisco today, which could see the start of a rumored sickout by operators.

The union denies calling a sickout today through Friday to protest recent changes to work schedules and a new requirement for workers to pay for their parking. But a flier from an unidentfied source was circulating around the city and the transit agency is taking no chances in changing its sick policy.

Before, Muni operators need to show a doctor's note only after calling in sick five straight days. Now, they have to show a note after just one day.
