This comes from the latest "express line"
38 years: David Pfeiffer, Operator
35 years: J Edward Robinson, Rail Supervisor; Michael Schuermyer, Rail Controller
21 years: Stan Strauss, Technical Support Specialist
7 years: Bernie Bottomly, Executive Director Affairs
Trimet elites wrote nothing about all the people that have retired after spending 21-38 years, but look at this nonsense they wrote about Bottomly
FUTHERMORE TRIMET DEKE FOR GENERAL MANAGER!
I'm still working on a series of posts detailing how transit management should work FOR Portland, rather than bending over for Corporata's ridiculousness. The "Bored of Directors" will argue against it, but they are the epitome of insanity, insisting that the status quo remains its only hope for success. They need to be fired, en masse, and replaced by a more forward-thinking, frontline-first group who are not swayed by the backward-thrusting, capital project-supporting corporatists holding sway over Metro's death-grip cabal.

Morale among our frontline workers is dismal. I only use that word in want of something more devastatingly descriptive. Those tasked with negotiating a new labor contract have flooded talks with so many takeaways there is no chance in hell we would agree. Especially after the past three contracts, which have seen us give away most of what was promised when we were the premier transit agency in the world. Management bets on talks going to a state-appointed arbitrator which is likely to take its side over ours.
