What is the best thing about being retired from TRIMET

THIS

MAX incident-behind the scenes

You might have seen Max Derailment, April 20th, 2009 video, well this is the action behind the scenes at the light rail communications center at a recent even RIGHT HERE!

This was a 2 hour incident that was painstakingly edited myself so you can 'hear' the whole incident in format that is useable.

When you retire you don't have to pay union dues anymore

Unless you want to! Look at the great opportunity it gives us: (I joined)

Good time to revisit this excellent MAX FAQ's post

TRIMET ACTIVIST H.B.

Now that we have been acquainted with each other, NOW, is the time for action.  There is a number of things that "all" of us can do if "we" put "our" heads together.  This is a test of just HOW SERIOUS, you are about this situation.  Although, it is good to hear that Lift got the response they need to get back to the table, NOW, it's "our" turn.  As I told you that "we" need to put the pressure on this company to do the right thing and compensate "us" for creating an unsafe work environment.

Crazy world

All this gnashing of teeth over our health care is laughable if one is able to see the bigger picture.
For example Trimet's unfunded liability which critics love to point to constantly is somewhere in the area of $800 million.But
But take a look at the City of Portland's:
From BOJACK.ORG

Trimet's unfunded liability is nothing compared to the City of Portland.
But the media has made Trimet the issue, and the suckers out in the public buy it hook, line, and sinker.

I've been removed from Trimet History

My name is not listed as changing to full time, making 15 years as an employee, or retiring, alas, I have achieved the ultimate status, complete removal from TriMet history!
I had actually achieved a TRIFECTA, Saturday was my 15 year anniversary, Sunday was my full time status, and Monday I was retired. I should have made all three headings, "changes", "milestones" and "retired"!
