TRIMET IGNORING ELRB ORDERS
The Pièce de résistance-TRIMET YOU WILL PAY US BACK FOR YOUR ILLEGAL MANEUVERS
TRIMET ORDERED TO INFORM ALL EMPLOYEES ABOUT ITS 'ILLEGAL ACTIONS"
TRIMET EMPLOYEES ORDERED TO BE MADE WHOLE AFTER OUR UNETHICAL MANAGERS BREAK THE LAW
AND HERE WE HAVE IT-TRIMET IMPOSED THE HEALTH CARE COSTS IN RETALIATION
Remember when McFührer said Oregon law gave him permission to impose his commands
SOME GEMS FROM THE NEWEST RULING ABOUT OUR LYING MANAGERS
Trimet final offer "illegal"
ARBITRATOR SAYS 'TRIMET CAN BE SUED'
ARBITRATOR CALLS OUT YET ANOTHER LIE BY TRIMET
ARBITRATOR LEVELS SCATHING ATTACK AGAINST TRIMET M...
ARBITRATOR ACTUALLY CALLS OUT TRIMET LIES
And now we will look at the final Order of the Employment Board
10,810 PPS high school students
Retail TriMet Youth pass is $27/mo
PPS students are in school 40 weeks per year
10,810 * $27 * 12 * 40/52 = $2,694,184/year
Why is PPS paying full retail price? Employers under the Universal Pass program do not pay the full price -- they pay based on ESTIMATED USAGE. Why is the formula different for PPS?
My hunch --
In the past they probably scratched their heads and said "hey TriMet, if we can get BETC to get you some dough, then let's do it." But now that BETC is gone, Sam is not willing to fudge the numbers to TriMet's benefit. Even Mary F. herself said that the youth pass program only costs TriMet "a couple hundred thousand" dollars for extra buses.

(I really need to get more involved with these folks but they seem to be doing just fine without me)
According to the agreement headed to the Portland City Council for approval next week, Portland will pay $200,000 toward the estimated $2.9 million program.
PPS will contribute $950,000 -- up from their usual $800,000 contribution.
TriMet will absorb the rest -- about $1.75 million in forgone revenue.

Every single news outlet covered the anti union ruling by Gaba. Although some of the media actually made some reference to the illegal and unethical sections of that Trimet contract, none of them actually delved into it.
Now we have yet another ruling, which has strongly condemned Trimet management on many levels, but where is the media? NOT ONE BIT OF COVERAGE, FROM ANYONE!
“People shouldn't expect the mass media to do investigative stories. That job belongs to the 'fringe' media.”
