TriMet Brothers & Sisters,
We are excited to deliver your long awaited tentative agreement. Thank you for your patience! If you have any questions after reviewing this document, please reach out to your Executive Board Officer. This has been a long and hard fought road. The parties started meeting over a year and a half ago and have been deep in the trenches since. Legal battles, a pandemic, fires, and just about anything else you can imagine have tried and failed to stop us. It has been adversarial, it has been tiring, but at the end, the parties were both able to put our members and the public first and came to an agreement at 12:30 Thursday morning.
Like all negotiations, there was give and take. But we think that every concession we made was with purpose and ultimately resulted in a big win for you. We are proud of the gains we got for each department and for the membership as a whole. We are proud of the foresight your officers had in looking to the future when making hard decisions. And we are extremely proud of the solidarity each department showed in fighting hard for the other. Together we fight; together we win! Below is a list of notable changes. We are currently drafting a compilation of all TA’s and will get it out as soon as possible.
