TRIMET DEKE PULLS NO PUNCHES



Heroes, my ass. You couldn't even use the chunk of dough the feds gave you to provide us with hazard pay during this pandemic, as other cities did. Our union had to call in the International Amalgamated Transit Union heavies to get you to even listen to our representatives at the negotiations for our yearlong contract talks. Negotiations in which you insisted upon a terribly-long list of "takeaways" while ignoring our pleas for the most basic of necessities. In the end, we get a pittance of what we have earned through our professionalism despite your harassment. Wow, I truly feel heroic with a pay raise that once again failed to match the increased cost of living. It certainly doesn't reward us for choking through the past year where every moment on the job we risked our very lives.

I have both excelled and failed In this bus operator's journal. While so far I have failed in this post to describe to you what it was like to drive a bus 150 miles in 10 hours today, it has become an alternate goal over most of this decade to share my inner thoughts. At this point, my mind has become numb. Pandemic, protest/violent Portland riots, isolation from beloved friends and excruciating passenger moments..

TRIMET DEKE

 



Other things have helped me smile more lately. As I drive the bus, I look more for the good while trying to ignore the bad. My soul has been wounded too many times to dwell much on the sickening. Each shift finds me living for the moment, smiling at people behind the mask and hoping my eyes tell the story within. I truly do love meeting new folks, alternately hesitant to make a connection. I battle sadness as the constant PTSD interferes with peaceful interaction with those I serve.

Run for union office, some tell me. NO. It's not something I would be effective at. Be a trainer, others encourage. NO. I don't want to fake my "professionalism" when I'm still perfecting myself as a bus operator, nor do I aspire to mingle so closely with an upper management that remains so out-of-touch with the professionals who do the work which makes their positions possible. I just cannot do it.
