He met all the qualifications to be a permanent employee and actually liked the job.
He met all the goals of a probationary employee yet last week he was put out on administrative leave and today he was told he 'he was a danger to the company'.
He was not given any specifics as to why they came to that conclusion.
All of his check ride reports were positive.
I know that Trimet officials are capable of heinous acts (see the attempt to imprison Lane Jensen) but this guy certainly didn't deserve this treatment.
He only spoke highly of Trimet on social media.
I'm actually shocked that this happened to him.
As I said, I think they were scared of his social media presence.
Many of us followed his feed studiously.
The last thing Trimet wants is union employees who are 'too big for their britches'.
Personally I think they did him a favor. That job is not what it used to be. Drivers can make more money driving for UBER actually albeit there is no benefits but then again there are no moron bosses either.
Remember that Trimet refused to hire our buddy Chad Solomon who is now employed full time at Seattle Metro and absolutely loves it!
One of the most entertaining #trimet feeds was @TMDriver Today the cowards at Trimet fired him by phone pic.twitter.com/lLowgDrMIY— AL M (@AlYourPalster) November 4, 2015
@trimetdriver a bucket of suck. Hold fast, Sometimes what looks like a fail may become a great success.— Dan Christensen (@Dan_Christensen) November 5, 2015
