Samantha says body snatchers will solve our payback problem


TRIMET ACTIVIST 'HB'



Dear Brothers and Sisters,
 I am writing this letter to share some of “our” thoughts on the situations that “we” are now faced with losing the Arbitration, I know that most of “our” brothers and sisters have not taken the time to read the ruling.  In this form “we” will share an emotionless highlight of observations “we” had seen in the ruling, and how it “will” affect “us” going forwards, and what steps “we” need to take.  Starting off with what the company did wrong.

MY CASE TO THE COURT WILL BE SIMPLE

Mr Mcfarlane tells us that the ARBITRATOR RULING supersedes the ELRB ruling. In other words the arbitrator has the power to IMPLEMENT CONTRACTS THAT HAVE BEEN BARGAINED IN BAD FAITH. I personally AM NOT a lawyer, but I don't see how an illegal provision in a contract is legally binding arbitrators ruling or not.

Heat Wave

Summer has finally arrived in the Northwest (at least for a day or two), with temperatures expected in the mid-90's + here in Portland. Therefore, Tri-Met has put out the word that its vaunted light rail lines will be...um...delayed. You see, the fixed-rail systems that they've spent billions of dollars on don't work all that well in the heat.
Heat causes the rails to expand, and it also causes the aerial power lines that feed the trains' pantagraphs to sag. This means that they have to go vewy, vewy slowly in order to avoid derailments or other damage to "infrastructure".
Buses don't have such issues, but there are two big problems with them: they aren't cool, and they're inexpensive. Tri-Met, which has morphed from a transit agency into a development agency, hates buses.
