Bus drivers to strike because uniform pants are too tight

MARSEILLE, France, - Bus drivers in a French city said they will go on strike because, among other grievances, the uniform pants they are required to wear are too tight.

The drivers, who work for the public transport authority in Marseille, said Friday the company's 1,600 employees will strike for 24-hours June 3 because they don't approve of "the quality, the color or the fit" of their new uniform pants, The Local.fr reported Friday.

"I won't be wearing them," a Marseille bus driver told the La Provence newspaper. "You'd think we work for [car repair company] Speedy! The shirts are alright, but these pants are far too tight."

CGT union leader Bernard Gargiolo said union leaders are upset they weren't consulted in choosing the uniforms.

"The employees don't want to wear a uniform that was chosen unilaterally by [RTM's] management, without taking into account the reflections of our clothing committee," Gargiolo said.

Many believe Bonaparte suffered from heartburn, thus he held his hand over his stomach.

Actually he was holding something.

Having been blessed with genes for an “ethnic” styled posterior, and an abundance of muscle in my thighs, I do feel a bit of sympathy for these people. It does suck when the top part of your trousers are overly snug while the bottoms are baggy.

Our bus drivers could use a little tailoring.

Wouldn’t want to ride on a bus driven by a driver whose pants are too tight.

Lol, bus drivers should always wear loose fitting clothing, especially underwear and pants.

So, order the next size larger or go on a diet. Maybe that solution is too simple.

Some may remember all the problems the Los Angeles transit system had, after modifying Grumman-made buses, to fit the bulkiness of their own ‘Ralph Cramdens’, with the union doing the yelling about it.

From the episode "Better Living Through Television":

Ralph Kramden: "This could be the biggest thing I ever got into!"

Alice Kramden: "The biggest thing you ever got into was your pants!"
