Tri-Met hearing April 7th at 4pm

TriMet has proposed severe cuts to bus and train service, in the face of budget cuts. But in these hard times, ridership is up and we need all our public transit more than ever. We are coming together to demand no cuts to service (not just don't cut my bus line, but don't cut anybody's bus line!) and no cuts to transit workers' jobs.

From there we'd like to build towards a proactive coalition, as some other cities have, to make mass transit more affordable and workable for all.

Get involved in organizing: Next organizing meeting this Saturday March 14th, 1 pm, Chit Chat Cafe (1907 SW 6th Ave, downtown at 6th & Hall near PSU).

Or just turn out to the hearing: And whether you can get more involved or not, please plan if you can to bring a sign that says "NO CUTS!" and come out to the TriMet hearing on Tuesday April 7th, 4-7 pm, Portland Building 2nd floor (1120 SW 5th, downtown at 5th & Main).

The Union needs to know of these plans; it will help them to avoid a concessions mentality.
