Law professor states for the record Trimet is lying

In the article, Professor Cunningham-Parmeter says a technical read of the state law might support TriMet's position that it is prohibited from paying employees to attend union orientation. But case law around the National Labor Relations Act, upon which state laws for public employee unions (are) based, (has) found that paying employees for their time to attend union functions is generally allowed.
"This is not a novel issue at all," Cunningham-Parmeter said. "It's settled law that assisting a union in these ways is perfectly permissible."
