ADRON HALL'S TRANSIT BEER CONFERENCE RESUMES IN SEATTLE!

punkrawker blogs on: Save the Date - Adron Halls Transit Beer: Seattle Edition

No board meeting!

I have the Audio of the january Trimet board meeting but internal Trimet rules prohibit me from posting it for public viewing!
Sorry but I work for a government agency that has a grip around my throat.

Labor problems at Mt Hood community college

The Advocate Online - May 28, – Volume 45, Issue 30

I SENT THIS VIDEO TO ROBERT ROMO , HAYDEN TALBOT, SHELLY LOMAX

Apparently Evelyn Minor-Lawrence can't receive email.
I sent it via company mail.

HOW REASONABLE IS THIS TURNING PROCEDURE?

(hopefully I won't be fired for posting this, not sure anymore about what I can and can't post)

THE NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS ACT

http://www.nlrb.gov/national-labor-relations-act

IS THIS THE HILL I WANT TO DIE ON?

That's the statement of an attorney who has just given me the short answer without detailed investigation into the actual Trimet HR policies and viewing my letters of reprimand.


A comprehensive answer will require a lengthy interview with an attorney and all the supporting documents.

Some folks say to me, “why do you even care about any of this”?
It’s not that I couldn’t live without doing these particular activities, but its symptomatic of a larger problem going on not only in our little corner of the world here at Trimet, but the whole country!

It’s called the extinguishing of ideas.
It’s the method that the management is using to get me to comply with their “orders”.
It’s the entire organizations complete disregard of our rights as employees and citizens.

Allowing Trimet to rule what I do off the job is dangerous precedent, for everybody that works here.

Each victory for the management emboldens them to take further liberties in regards to their employees.

The fight is really about freedom, not dispatch calls.

I am writing a response to this letter from Romo, I will send it out when it is complete.
At that time I will request a meeting with Hayden Talbot to discuss this matter.
There is no rush to complete the task.

After that step is complete, I will decide if “this is the hill I wish to die on”.

In the meantime, obviously I have to comply with the restrictions put on my freedom.

TRIMET MANAGERS TORTURE SANDI DAY

BULLYING YOUR EMPLOYEES INTO SUBMISSION

Companies that have a history of poor treatment of employees or those companies with bullying aggressive work environments are discovering that social networks are their worst enemies

I SUBMIT A REQUEST FOR REVIEW TO THE ACLU

FASCISTS IN CONTROL-no identification necessary to comment

Due to the fascist nature of our management, it is now permissible to leave anonymous comments on posts to prevent management identification and undue retaliatory  punishment against employees.

MANAGEMENT BY LIES AND DISTORTIONS

Read the following closely, as it was the basis of my punishment today:






Now read this, from the original letter of expectations:






As should be obvious, the first counseling is very clear that the purpose of that meeting was to help my on the job performance.
In the second letter, all of a sudden these liars that make up our management have decided that the purpose of the first meeting was to deal with my recording behavior!

IT’S A CLEAR LIE!
AN OBVIOUS DISTORTION!
They make it up as they go along!
There is no consistency in the management team whatsoever!

MANAGEMENT BY HYPOCRISY

Interesting that if any member of the general public had posted this nothing would have happened.

But I posted it, and they can fire me for doing that apparently.
It’s also interesting that my state of mind gets no consideration.
I wonder if anybody reading this understands just how upset I was over being penalized for doing something that I thought was entirely legitimate!
It never occurred to me, even for the slightest second, that I would be subject to these recording rules!
When they talked to me about “recordings” these were recordings I was making  in person, as a party to whatever was going on.
The dispatch “recordings” are actually CAPTURES, I am “capturing’ the audio, I am not an observer or participant in these conversations.
The law specifically calls them “intercepts”.
It is not the same activity! And I bet they know it!
When I left that meeting I was pretty damn upset, and had to make sure I kept my emotions in check in order to continue operating a bus!
 We are all dealing with a very abusive management now, a management that lacks all standards of ethics and decency.
Beware operators, be very aware.
