Trimet Attacks ATU 757 Members/Letter From Congress

To our TriMet members,

We are not giving up! We are fighting for you and will continue to do so until the very last minute. Thank you U.S. Representatives Earl Blumenauer
and Peter DeFazio for your support! We would also like to thank the International ATU for all of their support and assistance in this continued fight.

The Union and TriMet bargaining teams met for their final mediated bargaining session on Thursday, March 11. TriMet refuses to reach a fair agreement with Local 757 Members. While we have made some progress on issues like road relief, TriMet refuses to bargain fairly with the Union on almost all other open issues. Instead, TriMet is focused on dismantling the apprenticeship programs and eliminating hundreds of maintenance jobs.

We deserve better than TriMet’s insults and insulting proposals. That’s why our bargaining team has rejected them. That’s why on Thursday members welcomed new General Manager Sam Desue by flooding him with phone calls demanding that he get involved in bargaining.

Now, we need every member to take action! The Union will be having a teletownhall with President Block and special guests from the International to update members on what’s next:

Rise up against TriMet’s attacks!
