The Union met with the TriMet negotiation team this morning to exchange contract proposals.  This begins the 150 day timeline in the negotiations process.

TriMet did not wish to propose or entertain any ground rules, but specified that the press and/or general public would not be allowed to observe the negotiations process.  It has always been, and remains to be, the position of the Union that the press and general public have a right to observe the contract negotiations in accordance with ORS 192.660(3).
