There were several valid reasons for me leaving the employ of Trimet. Beyond the fact that I was being harassed by management for my involvement in Trimet politics, there was the overall working atmosphere which was steadily declining into a very unhealthy and hostile working environment. That was happening due to Trimet managements intentional use of propaganda which is willingly spread by the anti union corporate media. In this video (which Steve has referred to in the post below this post) they make the claim that benefits are 150% of benefits, an obvious falsehood. All this false information spread by cutthroat immoral Trimet executives, never challenged by anyone other than a few minor bloggers, an ignorant workforce that would most likely continue working without any benefits at all if it came to that, and a mostly impotent union. This will have a very bad ending I am afraid. I am afraid especially for the retirees who are getting dragged down by the impotent union and workforce of sheeple.
I for one will continue fighting these battles, without the support of the employees or the support of the union, which so far has always been the case.
