A collection of Trimet material from the point of view of a former Trimet bus operator and current Trimet blogger-sorry for all the typo's no time to proof read this stuff
It's time to re-visit this excellent post by Jack Bogdanski
Tri-Met brass: It's all the union's fault
The head of Portland's insolvent transit agency has taken to badmouthing his employees' unions
these days. But he can't seem to make that speech without a "planning"
consultant from CH2M Hill next to him. Ah, those consultants -- who
make the millions setting up money-burning rail projects like the insane
WES train and the equally nutty Mystery Train to Milwaukie. Yes, the
unions have overreached in recent years, but when Tri-Met ends up in
bankruptcy and the workers get maneuvered out of their pensions, you
won't see CH2M Hill giving back any money. Tri-Met brass: It's all the union's fault (Jack Bog's Blog)
Ok guys. I hate to be the bearer of bad news.
So i'm posting here for Cameron at the moment. His internet has been down the past day or so and due to that he will not be able to carry out the initial plan he had for this board meeting.
Dan has been writing some really great stuff since he re-started his blog. Excellent stuff actually.
I have noticed he has steered clear of Trimet political issues, which somewhat surprises me given all that has gone on with management over the past year.
