A TriMet employee posted the passing of a long-time operator, which is someone... ’s right to do. Other operators expressed concerns to the operator’s supervisor because they were upset to learn of the passing in such a manner. We typically inform the supervisors of a passing, who then communicate directly to employees who worked with the individual, we send in grief counselors, etc. We handle these kinds of situations very sensitively. The supervisor approached the operator just to inform that others were impacted by the post. We did not ask to have the post taken down, nor would we have the right to ask him to do so in this situation. We just wanted to alert the operator that other people were emotionally upset.
This is crap!
