UNION RIGHT OR WRONG?

I am a very big union supporter,but not all union members deserve support, especially from me.
Just because somebody is in the union does not mean I will defend them in all matters. When a driver threatens a rider, that driver deserves to be held accountable, period.
There are many Trimet drivers that have  no business behind the wheel of a bus, and how they got in to this agency is beyond me. Another example of complete incompetence by the management of this  company.

I hold TRIMET to very high standards,and I hold the union and union members to the same standard!

I will attack the union with the same vigor that I attack Trimet if they deserve it.

Right vs wrong is not Trimet vs the Union, its people vs themselves.

Institutions develop their own inertia, I refuse to give up my principles be it for the union or the company!

Breaking – TriMet – Trimetageddon

RANTINGS SPECIAL PRESENTATION-NIGHTMARE COMMUTE IN PDX

This is the dispatch calls from about 4pm-about 8pm. Now why would there be such a mess. One theory is:
So Trimet SCREWS ITS RIDERS AND THE NON RIDERS, ALL AT ONCE!
Who cares about the peons anyway?

You know when Trimet gets somebody like this pissed off THEY ARE FUCKING UP BIG TIME

Omg Trimet you stink. 

Trimet was so slow today. If I pee myself before class I blame the bus.

Becoming harder to be a bus advocate with every bonehead move. Thanks for rerouting my bus to take twice as long. Brilliant

You see, at Trimet we have an abundance of Management but precious little Leadership. My definition of Management is “Answering questions that are asked or made obvious by events.” My definition of Leadership is “Solving things before they are questions or problems.” We have the former in abundance, but of the latter we at Trimet have precious little.
Read Dan's excellent editorial  HERE!
(This is a profound editorial. When something happens involving the public Trimet goes into all sorts of gyrations. One of the drivers gets stabbed, not a word)
