Trimet not following contractual time lines on grievances

  This letter is in reference to grievance #___________ dated ____/____/_______. This grievance was presented in written form to the Director of Labor Relations. This grievance was acknowledged as being received by the appropriate Department Manager dated ____/____/______. Since the acknowledgement of the above mentioned grievance there has not been any other communications from the appropriate Department Manager and/or the Director of Labor Relations to find a satisfactory settlement.

                Article 1, General Provisions, Paragraph 5, Affirmative Action, Section 3, Adjustment of Grievances & Arbitration, Step, 1 is the opportunity for ATU757 and TriMet to find a satisfactory settlement in a timely fashion. Failure to adhere as prescribed by this agreement is not acceptable and must be corrected. It is important that you contact me immediately so that we can resolve this violation of step 1.


                ATU757 and its representatives want to assure our members that the Working and Wage agreement between ATU757 and TriMet is being respected and followed. This notice is to demonstrate that ATU757 is doing everything within its power to give TriMet the opportunity to correct the above mentioned actions and serves as documentation of TriMet’s failure to adhere to our Working and Wage Agreement.
