Trimet has just taken 19 part timers full time!
Guess who gets the #1 seniority spot!
It will be the only time I achieve a #1 status at TRIMET! Hooray!
After consideration of the contract confusion and the distinct possibility that Trimet union employees benefits can be drastically changed, I have decided to go back to the one and done method.
Do my one day as a full timer and go enjoy life while I can. I 'enjoy' driving a bus as much as you can but this is definitely work. It's not fun, there is too much at risk, too many demands, and a fairly unsafe environment.
I'll take the small retirement with health benefits and leave the driving to somebody else.
