It's not getting enough press coverage. After exposing the lengths that Trimet executives will go to prevent any non flattering information (Joe Rose overtime story) to go public, the attempts of Trimet executives to keep the contractual negotiations secret tell the true story of Trimet.
Run by a  class of arrogant and entitled executives, who basically get away with murder in cahoots with that board of sock puppets, they are the only party holding up union negotiations.

The executives should be given their walking papers and fired.
They have multiple failures on their watch.
Trimet is in a mess, the executives in charge thrive.

FUCK YOU . Thank you for driving right past me, bus 12, at stop 13330 at 6:18. I waved, I yelled, and you wouldn't open the doors.

Trimet unsung hero's

Station Agent Mike Arronson keeps Trimet rolling
The 'station agent' is the person who struggles daily to make sure runs are covered and minimize run cancellations. They have to juggle the various personalities that are bus drivers and attempt to keep them happy and productive.
This particular station agent is most likely the best station agent at Trimet.(followed closely by Betsy Welter)  Always friendly, always trying to see that operator needs are met and hugely loved by the operators at Merlo garage. Never heard one bad thing about this guy and never had one single negative interaction with him when I worked there. I had my problems with many of the station agents employed by Trimet, but this guy sets the standard for excellence as a station agent.
For all the pontificating from Mcfarlane and Lomax, if they left tomorrow nobody would care.
If Mike Arronson left tomorrow there would be plenty of upset drivers. People like Mike Arronson keep Trimet rolling.
