Jon Hunt states that he has been in office for over 15 years now so here are some things that have taken place since he has been in office:
2003 – TriMet contract 2003-2009 negotiated and ratified.
2005 – Side letter created that takes TriMet Operators Breaks and meal time away and allowing that time to be classified as “Recover” time for the schedule.
2007 – ATU757 has Strike rights replaced with binding arbitration....
2009 – Binding arbitration fails, new contract 2009-2012 require members now to have to pay for 90/10 health benefits and retirees are hit as well.
2012 – TriMet requires members to pay for 80/20 health benefits or a higher rate for 90/10 the retirees were hit with this as well.
This is just some of the things that has taken place since Jon has been an officer in our union office. He has had some type of active role in all of these events. In Jon Hunt’s video he states “that past leadership styles did not produce the best results” as you can see he is right.
