THE TRIMET WAY-MANAGMENT BY INTIMIDATION


TRIMET managers continue their reign of terror using Stalinisttactics in its ongoing effort to humiliate and demoralize its employees.

FIRST TRANSITUNION BUSTER SPIES ride the system posing as actual riders and send in “secret”reports which management then takes as gospel truth to harass its operators.

There is the never ending “YOU DIDN’T CALL YOUR STOPS” violations that never seem toend . The management squids won’t define which stops to call, and don’t tellyou how to do the job correctly, they jus t continue down their path of endlessintimidation of its employees like we are “mind readers” and are supposed to knowwhat they actually want. 

The whole thing has turned into a comedy show, this neverending persecution has led me to just do the best job I can and laugh when theycall me in for one of their phony meetings. I have taken steps to protectmyself from the libelous ‘secret liars’ and I would encourage others to do thesame.

Your employer is against you and the public has been turnedagainst you!

 PROTECT YOURSELF!Nobody else will. The union is powerless in the face of management bullying!
The ‘secret liars’ are not only making up lies regarding thecall stop nonsense, which in reality is happening because TRIMET MANAGEMENT DID NOT FULFILL ITS RESPONSIBILITY IN UPGRADINGITS EQUIPMENT TO ADA COMPLIANT, but they are also making up nonsensesuch as “operator didn’t scan”.
Unless the ‘secret liars’ are sitting right across from adriver, they have no way to know what we are doing.
It’s just another STALINISTINTIMIDATION TACTIC.

BEWARE! SECRET LIARS ARE ON YOUR BUS! PROTECT YOURSELF FROMTHESE LIARS.
DON’T BACK DOWN TO THE MANAGEMENT IF YOU’RE DOING THE JOBCORRECTLY.

The ‘secret liars” are reporting every single thing they don’tlike about you:
“Operator braked too hard”
“Operator was not friendly”
“Operator ran a red light”
“Operator drove to close to bike”
"Operator is over weight"
IT GOES ON AND ON AND ON!

MANAGEMENT BYINTIMIDATION AND INNUENDO, STALIN WOULD BE PROUD.

The only part that Trimet has not included is the GULAGS and the firing squads.

KINDA SOUNDS LIKE PORTLAND-DESTROYED IN SECONDS

Man spits in TriMet drivers face


PORTLAND -- Police were looking Tuesday morning for a man who spit in the face of a TriMet driver on NE 122nd, north of Halsey.
The passenger ran from the bus. His girlfriend was detained, according to TriMet officials.
The couple boarded the bus without valid transfers, said Sgt. Pete Simpson. They were asked by the driver to leave the bus when the man spit on the driver.

TRAINING RIDERS TO COMPLAIN

(Someone called customer service complaining an operator was talking on a
cell phone when they were actually using the bus phone.  The dispatcher
called the operator to tell them, and was noting that the caller should
realize it wasn't a cell phone because he didn't think there were cell phone
handsets that look like the old-style ones found in the buses.)

3/4 mile boundary - The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires, at a minimum, that complementary paratransit service be provided within a corridor of three‑quarters of a mile on either side of a fixed‑route. A transit agency may increase that corridor. TriMet has adopted the 3/4 mile boundary.
ADA ride: An ADA eligible customer is transported from an origin and to a destination within the ADA service boundary (3/4 mile of a fixed‑route).
ADA Eligible: The ADA rules state that if a person is unable to use fixed‑route service because of a disability, or is unable to get to/from a fixed‑route stop because of a disability, that person is eligible to receive paratransit service.
ADA: Acronym for the Americans with Disabilities Act, enacted into law in July, 1990.
Agency client: A person who is sponsored by a social service agency which contracts with TriMet to provide transportation for its clients. The agency is billed for the ride.

THE THIRD WORLD COMES TO AMERIKA

Never have seen anything like this in the USA, until now:

An unlocked panel door leading to a battery shut-off switch made it easy for a group of teenage criminals to disable a CTA bus, then climb aboard the darkened vehicle and attack its passengers, transit officials said Monday.
