FREE AT LAST


Although technically not retired, I will not have to drive any bus until the end of the month, and that will be only 1 day. Then another month until I have to drive again! And even after that it will only be one day a week till the end of May. Come June it will be over for me, if everything goes as planned in my life.

God what a relief to have my life back. I stayed part time because during the line training it became obvious to me that I would never last as full time driver here.

The shifts are too long, the work hours are too crazy, and the management of questionable ethics, even back then.

NO BUSES FOR THESE FOLKS

"I won't board them, never," wrote one.
"I hate buses, and the only time I boarded one was when going to Kabale to visit my ex-boyfriends family," wrote another. "Every time I see a bus reminds me of the cheating bastard."
"Buses are dirty and the people in them are dirty," yet another one wrote, "and besides, they are always having accidents and killing people."

MOVE TO FLOOD TRIMET WITH WORK CARDS


I wanted to know if I was the only one that saw that.  Did you also notice "our" leader seemed unsure about talking about "our" issues?  Not really knowing what to say about "our" increasing need for health care.  Unacceptable.  Anyway, there is something I need to say, did anyone notice the new work cards?  I think Trimet heard "us" and is trying to get ahead of "us" on this issue, so they can say, "no one reported anything"  So if everyone can fill the card out (ask your station agent or check your pouch) on "every" single bus you get on, "we" can finally put the pressure back on them, to get those dirty busses cleaned, it's been a year plus.  Since "our" so-called leadership refuses to take up this issue, it is up to "us" to take care of "our" own health and safety.  PASS THE WORD AROUND!!!!  LETS HIT THEM WITH HUNDREDS OF THESE A DAY, EVERYDAY!!!!

REGARDING THE $3 MILLION LIGHT RAIL LAW SUIT...

This post should be re-visited:

Once again rail safety compromised by Maintenace of way manager R K. orders volume on crossing gongs turned down to appease an angry neighbor. This is on a crossing at Baseline Rd in Beaverton where there has already been 2 fatalies involving pedestrians. When advised by the signal Asst Supervisor that this would be a bad idea he was ordered to do it anyway. The asst supervisor then told K he had reported the demand to ODOT K demanded all the Asst. Supervisors correspondence be surrendered to him. Mr K failure of understanding the importance of not tweaking the design of rail safety appliances is an endangerment to both the public and Trimet employees.

DID YOU KNOW.....

That 'managements" pensions are fully FULLY FUNDED while they make their intentionally destructive propaganda campaign against union workers.

WHY IS MACFARLANE SO HAPPY?


WHAT KIND OF BULLSHIT IS THIS?

We are all familiar with the Cascade Policy Groups listing of all TRIMET employee payrolls HERE!

What I want to know is why CASCADE POLICY GROUP was given this information FREE while the rest of us are being charged EXORBITANT fees for similar information?
