Hey-here are some good pictures of the asshole general manager


TRIMET LOVES TO REWARD FAILURE

Here is Fred, who is now enjoying his $15700 a month pension for building things that are categorical failures. Just look at the smirk on his face!

TRIMESS STRIKES AGAIN

With lead apologist MARY FETSCH.

KATU HERE

Good old Ron Heintzman

Those of us that know the history of this man know that this is the champion of sore losers. There has never been an election that he has lost that he hasn't challenged. (Wally Fiest, Larry Hanley)

So goes it at ATU 757 right now. It appears that his crony JONATHAN HUNT had appointed an election committee before he left office that was set up especially to make sure there was a challenge to the presidency if Heitnzman lost. Well he lost and the old reliable crony system functions just as well now as it did 100 years ago. The election committee has reccomended a new election of the presidency, the only race that had a somewhat clear victory for Bruce Hansen.
I personally think there should be new elections but president is not one of them. The treasurer lost by the thinnest of margins and the vice president lost only because of stupidest of rules that ATU 757 follows. YOU DON'T NEED A MAJORITY VOTE TO WIN OFFICE and we had some rather arrogant  employees who decided they would throw their hat in the race. All of that lead to Jon Hunts Victory as vice president.

I have never been as hard on Jonathan Hunt as the majority of the membership has, but this is the last straw. We need to clear out the Heintzman/Hunt cabal once and for all.

Show up at the next union meeting and get this shit over with. The members are sick and tired of dealing with this blatant cronyism.
 
If Bruce Hansen is deposed I AM OUT OF THIS UNION FOREVER.

This is why REPUBLICANS win elections.

Trimet-we enjoy fucking with you

The public animosity against Trimet is breathtaking

Mary Festch says 'It's a massive undertaking that touches the entire agency'


The idea is to make riding TriMet a whole lot simplier by switching to 'go anywhere' fares. Now, all riders will have to do is purchase one ticket and they'll be able to travel anywhere they like. That means no more worrying about which zones your ticket is good for.
"It will be so much easier," said TriMet spokeswoman Mary Fetsch. (what a load of crap!)

TRIMET IS DEAD TO THE PUBLIC

There’s no sugar coating it: On Saturday, TriMet will hit riders with the most-sweeping fare changes in the agency’s 43-year history.

Riders who now purchase a $2.10 one-zone ticket to ride, for example, will have to pay 40 cents more as part of its balance-budgeting one-zone-fits-all plan.

So, what better way to protest than stage a gold old-fashioned transit funeral in the public square?

On Thursday, the riders union Bus Riders Unite, organized by the nonprofit OPAL Environmental Justice Oregon, will “mourn the loss of affordable fares and further cuts to bus service” with a New Orleans-style funeral in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square.
