Terms of the deal have not been announced, but multiple sources are reporting that a tentative deal between TriMet and it’s operators’ union, the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 757, has been struck.
I have not seen any official release or announcement from the ATU; will update this post if I find one.
Terms of the deal, which must be approved by both the TriMet board and the ATU rank and file, have not been disclosed.
After years of acrimony, and bickering over pointless things (on both sides), it’s nice to see a deal struck rather than imposed in arbitration (assuming this gets ratified). Better employee relations make for better service, if nothing else.
