Joe Rose can really get a story wrong

"Keeping pace with the marketplace
  • For only the second time in five years, non-union employees will see an average of 3 percent wage increase. There will be no automatic cost-of-living increases. The wage increases will be based on performance and overall compensation. A total of $1 million has been set aside for wage increases and are included in each division’s budget." 

Second set of $1,000,000 of raises for management in three years and you FAIL to mention it.  
So that is $2,000,000 per year going forward for management raises while the union is killing the company by trying to have the company honor, (a word TM mgt. has no clue about) prior agreements.  You know, the union employees that have had no raises for two years and 3 pay cuts in that time.   We know you hate the union but come on Joe, pretend you are a "reporter" for once and get your nose out of McFarlanes behind.  The truth is good for the soul Joe.  Try it for once.    pdxdriver

"For ONLY the 2nd time in 5 years". The same 5 years they've raised fares, cut services, cried budget shortages, and demanded takeaway after takeaway from their union workforce. Ain't that the new
Trimet Way, spitting in the face of the 99%!
