|Roberta Alstadt is paid handsomely to lie to the public|
"As part of an ongoing campaign to discredit TriMet, the ATU alleged that the MAX system is unsafe. These allegations questioning the safety of the MAX system are absolutely false. (would you expect a overpaid Trimet crony to tell the truth)
"The allegations are meant to deflect attention from contract negotiations. (hilarious)
"TriMet has repeatedly asked the ATU leadership to come to the table to negotiate excessive healthcare costs (more lies which has nothing to do with the max safety issue) and other contract loopholes (how bout the loopholes in your brain) They have refused to do so.
"TriMet's dedicated safety team and union mechanics, operators, controllers and field staff work every day to insure the system -- both bus and MAX -- is safe for TM riders and their fellow employees." (freaking hilarious, spend an afternoon sometime listening to the TRIMET SCANNER and see for yourself just how safe and desireable riding Trimet is these days)
