OSHA Federal Attorney Darrell Whitman is one of only 6 staff in the OSHA Region 9 protecting health and safety for whistleblowers in a region that covers nearly 40 million workers.
Whitman has been fighting the systemic violation of the rights of OSHA whistleblowers who stand up for health and safety on the job. He has challenged the systemic corruption in at OSHA and the DOL top management, which not only refuse to enforce the law but also has allowed some managers to falsify federal documents and illegally suppress the rights of whistleblowers.
This is not only a worker issue but also the right of the public and communities to be protected on the highways with trucks, on the railways, airlines, at oil refineries, nuclear plants and even our health and safety in buildings and other work, industrial and super-fund Brownfield sites throughout the country.
As a result of fighting for whistleblowers, Whitman himself and other AFGE members in this section of OSHA have come under attack, being bullied and threatened for following and enforcing the law to protect OSHA whistleblowers.
Whitman is also a shop steward for AFGE Local 2391 and a delegate to the San Francisco Labor Council. This press conference will report on this case and also the connection to the workers and communities in the Bay Area and the nation.
