TriMet phasing out 'non-foil' old-style fare tickets

TRIMET TRANSIT DISTRICT CONTINUES USING ITS BULLY PULPIT

In their new posting about the budget problems, we see a very obvious attempt to sway public opinion.
Is it actually legal for a non profit governmental agency to preach a point of view to the public?
More abuse of authority from our "managers". 
It's obvious to me that this company has been actively engaging in a all out public relations war on its employees, blowing up the bad employees into a public spectacle, and propagandizing  using its multi million dollar tax payer funded marketing department.
It's despicable.


Because of a 2007 change in the law, we cannot unilaterally implement our final offer to the union. Instead we must engage in all-or-nothing interest arbitration, a forum in which it is extremely difficult to make significant changes no matter how out-of-line union wages and benefits are.  

  TriMet: Why is there a budget shortfall?

Does Trimet ignore relevant information with the intent of embarrassing its employees?

We get our first look at RANDY STEADMAN

The new TriMet Labor Relations guy. 
(Maybe I was imagining things but it sure appeared that he was staring at me several times during that board meeting)

What about the other "Hunts"?

How did Sam make as much as Jon? This  is the 2011 report.

The TriMet budget problems

 This is pretty interesting actually. I filled out the questionnaire at the end and made one comment:
All employees making $100k or more a year need to take a 10% pay cut!
Also there is a shameless use of anti union propagandizing in this "tool"

More better?

Jack Bogdanski commentary

Boring secession from Tri-Met passes (Jack Bog's Blog)

Rising star on the TRIMET board

The more I watch and listen to Steve Clark, the more I am impressed with his point of view. At first I thought he was just running interference for the paradigm, but I am beginning to change my mind. I am not the only person to notice his independent agenda.

What's wrong with Tiffany Sweitzer?

For the last four meetings she has left the meetings as soon as the public testimony begins. We are sure she is a very busy woman, but never hanging around to hear the public comments shows a complete lack of empathy for the transit riding population. If she feels she is too busy to actually attend the meetings to the end then maybe she should resign or be replaced.
