Transit Driver Appreciation Day

To show their appreciation of their drivers, TriMet files a lawsuit against the drivers union ATU757. Apparently operators are screwed on the breaks if there is a mechanical issue, traffic, or any other reason. TriMet expects the operators to keep the schedule at all cost regardless of the affect on health or  possible safety.

We know driving on a cell phone is distracting, but what about the need to go to the bathroom or feeling hungry because the schedule is unrealistic? The only operators appreciate are the ones foolish enough who put their health and safety in jeopardy along with public.

And when the union steps up to help the driver, TriMet files a lawsuit.
