DESTROYING TRIMET LIES AND DISTORTIONS


But okay, fine. You want to bring union workers in line with non-union workers? Well then, we’ll just take that to its logical conclusion. Let’s see… about 30% of our buses have no air conditioning, so to help save money, we’ll disable the A/C in about 30% of TriMet offices, like, oh I don’t know, the top floor of Center Street to start. And just like operators use seniority to sign good runs, non-union employees can use how long they’ve been at TriMet to bid for a good office. So to the newly hired Executive Director of HR? Sorry my friend, you’ll probably get stuck with no air conditioning. Good thing Oregon summers are more or less mild. But don’t worry! Every hour or so you’ll be allowed to get up, drink some ice water, and use the bathroom, as long as you don’t take more than 10 minutes to do all that.

JANUARY MEETING OF TRIMET ENABLERS AND SOCK PUPPETS


Wednesday

Dueling disabilities on the 48

A man with a cane who had limited mobility got into a fight with a man in a wheelchair when he wouldn't move so the wheelchair could board! The wheelchair ran over the feet of the man with a cane and the fight was on!

Knives drawn on the MAX!

8 police units Beaverton!

PROUD TO BE PART OF THE RAG TAG ARMY THAT IS FIGHTING THE SUPERPOWER

I watch the testimony of those of us who are struggling to fight the unstoppable power of the behemoth known at TRIMET, and I gotta say we are a rag tag bunch very dedicated activists.

I think we should all stand proud even though it appears we are talking to a light post!

“Empower. Trust. Stand Behind.”

This has been kicking around in my head since the budget tool was released. In part, as previously mentioned, because I thought that was a poor representation of possible options to save money. But more than that, all the sniping little comments in there taking shots at the union made me feel very uncomfortable. Personally I think that is grossly unprofessional for an official TriMet release. It’s not empowering, it doesn’t show trust, and it certainly isn’t standing behind union workers.
Accusing the union of refusing to be reasonable: present
Acknowledging that TriMet broke the law: curiously absent

WE LOVE LIGHT RAIL

Due to police activity, service is disrupted on MAX Blue and Red line trains in Downtown Portland. Shuttle buses will service light rail stops from the Rose Quarter Transit Center to the JELD-WEN Field MAX station. The disruption may also cause delays to bus service. Riders should expect delays.
