The only blog on the internet that takes a critical look at Trimet operations and does NOT just spit back Trimet press releases
Except that we are NOT getting a 4% COLA, thats false. We have received .07% in Nov, and .06% in Jan, current top pay is $29.13
It's still $4 more an hour than at Trimet and you're not driving around soot-spewing dinosaurs that should have been recycled in the Cash for Clunkers program.Even without a big machine behind him, Bruce personifies the fighting spirit that workers everywhere need to engage in order to stem the tide of executive greed going against us.
TriMet's FY2012 budget shows Health and Welfare Benefits as follow:-$18,353 per full-time Union employee-$13,592 per part-time Union enployee-$14,813 per full-time Non-Union employee-$11,215 per part-time Non-Union employee.By law, these numbers can't be wrong. Your thoughts?
Since when does trimet worry about breaking the law? They have already proven with the ERB that they think they are above the law.
By law, these numbers can't be wrong. Your thoughts?-->By law? what law? Lets look at my personal status.I have the 'goldent' blue cross.I have family coverage, which is what all those quotes are for.MANY EMPLOYEES DO NOT COVER FAMILIES-HENCE RIGHT THERE THE AMOUNTS ARE WRONG.Back to me, it costs Trimet $1640 a month for my health care package.BUT-I PAY $330 A MONTH OF THAT COST...ergo Trimet is paying $15,720 a year for my health benefits.I made $32k last year so basically Trimet pays half of my salary in health care.NOW CONSIDER THIS FURTHER:ABOUT 1/2 OF THE TRIMET UNION EMPLOYEES CHOOSE KAISER!Which is considerable less than Blue Cross YETthe propaganda being laid out is that EVERYONE IS GETTING THE GOLDEN HEALTH CARE PLAN!ITS A BALD FACED LIE!
It's that Enron accounting again. They make the numbers work for them and everyone buys it.
